Welcome to the National Qualifications Authority (NQA) website, a comprehensive website, rich in information, is designed for easy access for the information you need.

Since its establishment, the National Qualification Authority (NQA) has been developing standards and policies to build a qualification framework, the QFEmirates. The framework enables a coherent, consistent and quality assured approach to be taken for the design and delivery of qualifications for technical & vocational education and training, leading to a skilled and knowledgeable workforce for a globally competitive economy.

In order to achieve a qualitative shift in education in line with the directives of the wise leadership to continue the process of developing education and training in all sectors, the NQA is keen to build its institutional capacities, develop policies, and simplify procedures to improve services within a transparent, responsible and fair governance framework.

A vital part of NQA’s quality improvement and excellence journey involves engaging and consulting with all stakeholders. This is necessary to support the economic growth and sustainable development of the UAE. In this regard, NQA is particularly keen to develop qualifications in partnership with relevant industry sectors to ensure the availability of a qualified workforce that possess the knowledge, competencies and technological skills in areas such as artificial intelligence (AI), the internet of things (IoT) and big data.

The NQA will continue to launch new initiatives, build strategic partnerships with local and international entities to ensure the continued development of the educational system for future generations to meet the requirements of the UAE's current and future economic and industrial development, and thus achieving the 2021 vision of the United Arab Emirates.
