The Europass CV is a European-wide standardised template in 27 languages. Europass supports European citizens in presenting their skills and qualifications across Europe in a clear way. In this way it becomes possible for employers to compare the qualifications of applicants better.

Since October 1st, 2007 the Austrian Reference Point for Quality Assurance in Vocational Education and Training (ARQA-VET) has been established at the OeAD-GmbH. ARQA-VET’s task is to provide advice and service for the actors in vocational education and training in Austria in the area of quality assurance and quality development.

The national information centre Euroguidance Austria supports activities aimed at implementing political agendas in adult education.

The National Qualifications Framework (NQF) facilitates transparent presentation and comparison of qualifications. With the help of the Coordination Point for the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) institutions of all educational areas are given the possibility to inform themselves about the individual qualification levels which are described in the NQF. The NQF was implemented by recommendation of the European Parliament and the Council and is closely related to the European Qualifications Framework (EQF).
