Sectoral Qualifications Framework for TOURISM (SQFT)

TourismThe Sectoral Qualifications Framework for Tourism is one of the largest. As the sector is complex and diverse, it comprises four sub-frameworks describing other levels and qualifications. Its authors have emphasised that numerous other sub-frameworks will be required for subsequent areas. “Our framework is entirely different from those set up for the banking or sports area, for example. People tend to believe that a sector is no different from an industry, but there are multi-industry sectors out there, tourism being one of them. This is how we ended up with a framework consisting of four sub-frameworks,” says Professor Hanna Zawistowska of the Chair of Tourism of the Warsaw School of Economics, leader of the Sectoral Qualifications Framework for Tourism development project.
