  18. 18. BaMa structure 18
  19. 19. Flemish Qualification Structure• implementation of EQF• classification of qualifications = base for LLL• qualification = a set of competences for which „students‟ can obtain a legal certificate by the Flemish Government• a qualification shows what competences are relevant for a profession or to start an education program• how can you receive a qualification? ▫ through education ▫ through EVC (earlier obtained competences): prove your competences by a portfolio, …• level descriptors in terms of learning outcomes: ▫ level 6: bachelor ▫ level 7: master ▫ level 8: PhD 19
  20. 20. Flemish Qualification Structure• Professional Bachelor degree studies (PBA) have the objective to bring students to a level of general and specific knowledge and competences required to perform a particular profession or group of professions independently. A professional Bachelor‟s program can therefore lead directly to a place on the labour market.• The main objective of the Academic Bachelor degree studies (ABA) is that students go on to a Master‟s program. Thus they are geared towards bringing the students to a certain level of scientific or artistic knowledge and competences, in general, and towards a specific field of sciences or arts in particular. Preparing students for the labour market is only a secondary objective. 20
  21. 21. ECTS - DS• ECTS: European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System ▫ compatible with EQF ▫ European system to recognice qualifications ▫ based on the workload of students to reach the „learning outcomes‟ ▫ 60 ECTS = 1 year ; 30 ECTS = 1 semester (1 ECTS = 25 – 30 hours of study time) (1 year = 1500 – 1800 hours) ▫ Credits can only be obtained after successful completion of the work required and appropriate assessment of the learning outcomes achieved ▫ transfer of ECTS credits only if credits and learning outcomes are recognised by cooperating institutions (learning agreement before mobility) ▫ responsibility of quality assurance for each institution (accreditation) ▫ base documents:  study guide  student application form  learning agreement and transcript of records  Diploma Supplement (DS) 21
  22. 22. ECTS grading scale Grade best/ Definition Next A 10 % EXCELLENT - outstanding performance with only minor errors B 25 % VERY GOOD -above the average standard but with some errors C 30 % GOOD -generally sound work with a number of notable errors D 25 % SATISFACTORY- fair but with significant shortcomings E 10 % SUFFICIENT - performance meets the minimum criteria FX Fail - some more work required before the credit can be awarded F Fail - considerable further work is required1/12/2011 22
