The Zambia Qualifications Framework is composed of three “Sub-Frames”, as provided under the Zambia Qualifications Authority Act No. 13 of 2011.

A typical Qualifications Framework rests on three main pillars:

  • Qualification Standards Setting
  • Quality Assurance
  • Qualifications  Accreditation

All these pillars are rooted in established Standards. The determination of Standards and the design and implementation of these standards, through Quality Assurance Regulations are expected to be done by the respective Quality Assurance Bodies.
