The Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) is an informal meeting between states in the two continents. Cedefop, ETF, UNESCO and UNESCO’s Institute for Lifelong learning co-drafted the 4th edition of the global Inventory of national and regional qualifications framework and presented findings at the 7th ASEM education ministers' meeting, in Bucharest on 14 May.
As national qualifications frameworks (NQFs) are being implemented, their benefits and added value become increasingly visible. Cedefop’s latest European inventory on NQFs gives an overview of the frameworks’ progress.

Italy’s national qualifications framework (NQF) was adopted in January 2018. The Italian NQF has eight levels and its level descriptors are knowledge, skills, autonomy and responsibility. The development of the NQF responds, among others, to a need for integrating the different qualifications systems; improving the legibility, transparency and comparability of qualifications of different systems, nationally and regionally; and aiding geographic and professional mobility at national and European levels.
In April 2018, 15 sectoral qualifications frameworks were officially approved, marking agreement between educators and employers on qualifications required by the labour market.
