A 3-day Training for the administrative staff on designing level and qualification descriptors was held within the framework of Tempus “ARMENQA” project on 22-24 June in Linkoping University, Sweden. 36 representatives from Armenian higher education institutions and Ministry of Education and Science, National Information Center for Academic Recognition and Mobility, Republican Union of Employers and AEGEE Yerevan European Students’ Forum participated in the meeting. Russian-Armenian (Slavonic) University was represented by Dr. Eduard Ghzaryan - Director of the Institute of MHT, Ms. Marianna Kalashyan - Deputy Director of the Institute of PL, and Ms. Suzanna Shamakhyan - the Head of the International Cooperation Department.  

The main objective of the training was to facilitate the implementation of the Armenian National Qualifications Framework, formulation of level descriptors and learning outcomes, as well as the development of specific Sectorial Qualifications Frameworks. The training was conducted by the representatives of the Project’s European partners, namely by Janerik Lundquist (Linkoping University, Sweden), Volker Geimlich (University of Osnabrück, Germany) and Luc François (University of Ghent, Belgium).

The big group was split into two groups of 18 people and, besides the presentations, had practical assignments and tasks, which allowed to comprehend the RA National Qualifications Framework (ANQF) in comparison to the European ones, as well as to design learning outcomes in reference to the ANQF. The participants rated the training highly and stressed that it fully met the needs of their institutions. Afterwards, all the partner universities’ representatives will have in-house workshops within their institutions to share the gained knowledge with a wider audience.
