AMMAN — Prime Minister Hani Mulki on Thursday received the national qualifications framework proposal from the Chairman of the Accreditation and Quality Assurance Commission for Higher Education Bashir Zu’bi, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported. 

Mulki commended the National Qualifications Committee’s efforts in drafting the framework proposal. 

The proposal, which is in line with the National Strategy for Human Resource Development for the years 2016-2025, will contribute to the improvement of educational outcomes in the Kingdom and to the provision of more employment opportunities for young Jordanians, Petra added. 

Zu’bi noted that the national framework is “the first of its kind in the Kingdom”, and that the committee included representatives of all ministries and the concerned bodies with educational and vocational training. 

“It aims to ensure the achievement of the objectives of improving and advancing the future of education in Jordan,” he added. 

In addition, the National Qualifications Framework aims to reach a consensus between the outputs of teaching and learning in the educational system, and the qualifications issued by higher education institutions, both inside and outside of the Kingdom. 

It also seeks to encourage and motivate students to move towards vocational education and training, and to transition from traditional education, to education through outputs and student-centred education, Petra reported. 

Zu’bi pointed out that the framework consists of 10 levels, ranging from kindergartens to doctoral level, taking into account the equivalent in education and vocational training. 

 

He added that it will be issued as a draft system to be presented to the Cabinet for discussion and approval, Petra concluded.
