It is a way of structuring the existing and inclusion of the new qualifications in a framework that covers all the competenciesacquiredatprimary, secondary and higher education.

Accordingly, the proposed National Qualifications Framework (NQF) should be set in correlation with the levels in the European Qualifications Framework for lifelong learning and the cycles of higher education according the Bologna process. In this way, the NQFs qualifications will receive an initial comparability of qualification systems with other countries that used EQF or are involved in the Bologna process. In early 2009 the Republic of Macedonia joined in thecreation of own NQ Fin order: qualifications to become more explicitand with clearly defined objectives; to facilitaterecognition and nationally and in ternationally mobility and to equalizethe quality of educational servicesproviders.
