Welcome to Zambia Qualifications Authority

The Zambia Qualifications Authority Act No. 13 of 2011 was passed by the Government of the Republic of Zambia to “provide for the development and implementation of a national qualifications framework; establish the Zambia Qualifications Authority; provide measures to ensure that standards and registered qualifications are internationally comparable; and provide for matters connected with, or incidental to the foregoing”.

This paper suggests the steps to be undertaken by the Ministry of Education to establish the Zambia Qualifications Authority.

The Zambia Qualifications Authority will develop, manage, and operate the Zambia Qualifications Framework. It is pertinent to emphasise that the Zambia Qualifications Authority is not a Quality Assurance Body, but will coordinate the outputs of the relevant Quality Assurance Bodies who are responsible for the various parts of the education and skills training system of Zambia.
