About NSQF
The National Skills Qualifications Framework (NSQF) is a competency-based framework that organizes all qualifications according to a series of levels of knowledge, skills and aptitude. These levels, graded from one to ten, are defined in terms of learning outcomes which the learner must possess regardless of whether they are obtained through formal, non-formal or informal learning. NSQF in India was notified on 27th December 2013. All other frameworks, including the NVEQF (National Vocational Educational Qualification Framework) released by the Ministry of HRD, stand superseded by the NSQF.
The curriculum of the NSQF Courses are based on the outcomes acquired by the learners after completion of the course. All the NSQF compliant courses have been vetted by several related Industries. The recruitment rules of the Government of India and PSUs of the Central Government shall be amended to define eligibility criteria for all positions in terms of NSQF levels. The State Governments and their PSUs shall also be encouraged to amend their recruitment rules on above lines.
Under NSQF, the learner can acquire the certification for competency needed at any level through formal, non-formal or informal learning. In that sense, the NSQF is a quality assurance framework. Presently, more than 100 countries have, or are in the process of developing national qualification frameworks.
Specific outcomes expected from implementation of NSQF are:
Mobility between vocational and general education by alignment of degrees with NSQF
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), allowing transition from non-formal to organized job market.
Standardized, consistent, nationally acceptable outcomes of training across the country through a national quality assurance framework.
Global mobility of skilled workforce from India, through international equivalence of NSQF.
Mapping of progression pathways within sectors and cross-sectorally
