NCFHE

The National Commission for Further and Higher Education (NCFHE) was officially launched on the 14th September, 2012 and is legislated by the revised Education Act which came into force on the 1st August 2012. Its mission statement is:

“to foster the development and achievement of excellence in further and higher education in Malta through research, effective licensing, accreditation, quality assurance and recognition of qualifications established under the Malta Qualifications Framework.”

Advenio eAcademy is the first organization in Malta, licensed by the NCFHE whose services are based on online learning (NCFHE Licence number: 2013-FHI-0006).

NCFHE acts as a broker between the government and relevant higher education institutions and has successfully established a structured dialogue, through a series of regular consultations with all stakeholders to take on suggestions, recommendations and address concerns for the sector. These would serve as input towards the development of national strategies.

NCFHE’s mission statement states “to foster the development and achievement of excellence in further and higher education in Malta through research, effective licensing, accreditation, quality assurance and recognition of qualifications established under the Malta Qualifications Framework.”

NCFHE also oversees the implementation of the national Qualifications Framework, quality assurance and qualifications recognition as part of the Bologna and Copenhagen Processes. It also acts as the National Coordination Point for the European Qualifications Framework, ReferNet and forms part of the ENIC-NARIC Network.
