Most of the 36 countries involved in implementing the European qualifications framework (EQF) have defined, and largely adopted, level descriptors of learning outcomes, i.e. what an individual possessing a qualification at a particular level is expected to know and be able to do.

The report shows that while the EQF has influenced national level descriptors, countries have also adjusted the learning outcomes approach to their own needs and priorities: these descriptors have mostly been the fruit of extensive discussions between government, social partners, and education and training providers.

The report contributes toward the continuing evaluation of the EQF, to be concluded in a report of the European Commission to the European Parliament and Council later in 2013.
