Abstract

The Qualification Data Repository is a software component that allows providers of data on qualifications (awarding and training bodies, national authorities about officially recognised qualifications and accreditation and other quality assurance bodies), to upload datasets for publication on European web portals (such as the "Learning opportunities and qualifications" portal, the ESCO portal or EURES Drop'pin), in online services (such as job matching features of EURES or CV creation in Europass) and in semantic assets for republication as part of an interlinked data set (such as ESCO or national classifications).
