AQF Masters Descriptors Working Group

Monday, February 10 2014

ACPET members, Michael à Campo (Australian Institute of Management, South Australia) and Dr Roger Haden (Le Cordon Bleu Australia) recently represented ACPET at a meeting of the AQF Masters Working Group.  The Working Group is examining the revision of the Masters Degree descriptors.

With the increase in demand for Masters qualifications, the AQF is aiming to capture a range of views from across the Higher Education sector on ways to simplify the descriptors to make the qualification more compatible with AQF levels 7 and 8 qualifications. Points of discussion at the meeting included the interpretation of the terminology of the standards, and it was proposed that this should be simplified so as to avoid possible ambiguities. 

The proposed recommendations will next be presented to the AQF Board for approval.  ACPET expect s that after this further information will be available for the sector. 

Further information on qualification descriptors can be found on the AQF website.
