The QR can assist a whole range of users (including students, parents, employees, employers, education / training operators and appointed assessment agencies) to plan future study paths and continuing education.
For Learners :
The QR publishes qualifications offered by education and training operators. These qualifications are grouped by areas of study/training and/or by industry. The types of information include the granting body, level of the qualification, credit value of qualification, and mode of delivery, etc.
The QR helps you to better understand the information of these qualifications and their relevancy to the industries concerned, and it helps you map out your learning pathways for progression in the direction you desire.
