Abstract: This paper presents the preliminary stages of the design of MapQFTool, a software tool that will provide support to the understanding and comparability of the National Qualifications Frameworks (NQFs) of the various European countries. The paper starts by providing background information on the Bologna Process and the Qualifications Frameworks. It then addresses the limitations of trying to map the various NQFs against the European Qualifications Framework (EQF), and through the EQF against each other. It then proceeds with explaining the advantages of automating this process with a software tool and provides examples of information that can be generated through the proposed tool. A relational database design that will underpin the development of the tool is described, accompanied with screenshots of the system prototype and its architecture.
