It incorporates all qualifications across every education sector into one policy framework. The AQF aims to provide a flexible, nationally consistent and high-quality framework that benefits all students in tertiary study in Australia.

    The Australian Qualification Framework spans all areas of education and training in Australia, such as :

    • Schools
