CHE > Focus Areas > Standards Development > Framework

To give effect to its mandate, the CHE has developed a Framework for Qualification Standards in Higher Education. A first draft of the Framework was sent to all parties in the higher education sector on December 2011, with an invitation for the submission of comments. A Summary of Submissions and CHE Responses was subsequently circulated. Institutional and other comments, concerns and recommendation were taken into account in the preparation of a  draft of the Framework, which was endorsed by the Higher Education Quality Committee (HEQC) on February 2013 and approved by the Council in March 2013.
