Kenya will host a continental conference on the implementation of the Africa Continental Qualifications Framework (ACQF) from October 9-13, 2023 at Fairview Hotel, Nairobi.

The Programme, funded by the European Training Foundation (ETF) and led by the African Union Commission, chose Kenya’s KNQA as its host to transform education and workforce development in Africa.
