The Fiji Qualifications Council was established to manage the Fiji National Qualifications Framework, which stands as a beacon and reference for socio-economic planning.
The Council is guided by the Higher Education (Qualifications) Regulations 2010 and the Higher Education (Qualifications) (Amendment) 2013.
The Council is also responsible for accrediting qualifications at Levels 1 – 6 on the FNQF and reviews such qualifications every five years to ensure currency and adherence to acceptable and relevant standards of teaching, learning and assessment.
The Committee for the Accreditation of University Qualifications (CAUQ) complements the FQC in accrediting qualifications at Levels 7 – 10 on the FNQF.
Currently, the FQC comprises a Chairperson and eight members.
