Abstract

The core set of shared border guard functions performed across EU requires compatible job competences and a system of comparable learning outcomes that can ensure the national border guards are trained under a common framework, respecting the national education and training systems as well as the specific organizational needs, whilst achieving the desired qualifications described in a common language that makes them easily readable, comparable and compatible across EU. The development process of a Sectoral Qualifications Framework for Border Guarding to achieve this requirement is detailed as a potential exemplar to similar professional fields of learning, highlighting challenges encountered and solutions developed.
