What is the Qualifications and Credits Framework (QCF)?

The QCF is not a qualification; it is a framework that contains many qualifications of all types. The framework is a new way of recognizing skills and qualifications. It does this by awarding credit for qualifications and units (small steps of learning). It enables people to gain qualifications at their own pace along flexible routes.
