This policy paper argues that short-term tertiary education is important to achieve policy goals as equity and increased access to tertiary eduction. The paper outlines the 3 major reference frameworks in use ISCED [International Standard Classification of Education], NQF [national qualifications frameworks] and the EHEA [European Higher Education Area] and pleads for a clear policy for level 5 A and level 5 B programs in terms of permeability and labor market relevance. Both policy objectives are considered stepping stones of the European approach to lifelong learning. (Contains 3 figures.)
