    Introduction

    This Study is designed to consolidate the capacity of the social partners of the IMI PQ

    NET Romania project (governmental agencies and organizations, professional associations,

    etc.) to get information on the qualification recognition processes in the Czech Republic and

    also on the conditions under which the competences achieved by citizens by informal or non-

    formal learning may be certified there. We believe that this Study is an useful instrument for

    information on the Czech education and qualification system by creating ways allowing the

    mutual consultation with similar organizations in the European Union and the European

    Economic Area (EEA) through the internal market information system platform (the IMI

    platform) both for the competent authorities in Romania and for the Romanian citizens who

    want to work in the Czech Republic and need information for this particular purpose.

    The Czech Republic is divided into 14 regions out of which the capital city, Prague, is a

    separate administrative entity. A very important aspect is that the recognition attestation for a

    national coming to the Czech Republic as the host country is issued by the education

    department in the regional authorities. Besides the city of Prague, the 13 regions are: South

    Bohemian Region, Zln, Silezia Morava, Liberec, Pardubice, st nad, Labem, Karlovy Vary,

    Plze, Central Bohemian Region, Hradec Kralove, Vysoina and Olomouc Region.

    The structure of this Study is extremely simple and is focused on information regarding

    the two basic components allowing the access to work:

    1. The presentation of the Czech education system with referencing of the study

    level to the International Standard Classification of Education (ISCED) developed by the

    United Nations Organization for Education, Science and Culture (UNESCO) and through this

    to the Czech Qualification National Framework and the European Qualification Framework

    (EQF) respectively;

    2. The presentation of the legal and institutional framework for the recognition

    of qualifications achieved in other Member States of the European Union, the European

    Economic Area and the Swiss Confederation, along with a database including the Czech

    competent authorities homologous to the Romanian competent authorities on one hand, and

    the list of the regulated professions in the Czech Republic with the correspondence of the

    professions / occupations in Romania and their status, i.e. regulated / non-regulated

    professions on the other hand;

    We believe that all the written records have been used for an useful scanning of the

    system for the qualification recognition and competence certification in the Czech Republic,

    therefore we would like to thank all the people who have provided us with and facilitated our

    access to updated bibliographic materials: Mr. Andrei LINU, Mrs. Rodica LUPU, Mrs. Irina

    DIMITRIU, Mrs. Emilia ILIE, Mrs. Simona POPESCU and not ultimately the National

    Qualifications Authority methodology experts who have contributed with various

    deliverables to the proper execution of the IMI PQ NET Romania project.

    1. Competence certification process in the Czech Republic

    1.1. Education system and degrees / certificates achieved through it

    In the Czech Republic the public authority in charge with the educational system

    organization and policies is the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport (Ministerstvo kolstv,

    mldee a tlovchovy). The legislative framework for the current education system in the

    Czech Republic is regulated by: the Education Act no. 472/2011, setting the administrative

    procedures for the four levels of education: preschool, primary, secondary and tertiary; Act no.

    563/2004 on pedagogical staff regulating the requirements for the fulfilment of the teaching

    staffs duties during their training and career evolution; Act no. 383/2005 regulating the

    requirements for the education of children and teenagers with no proper family support or with

    behavioural issues; Higher Education Act no. 111/1998, with current amendments and

    completions, regulating the activity in the higher education public and private sectors (a new

    act is pending elaboration); Act no. 179/2006 regulating the recognition of the competence

    results obtained by adults who do not attend a formal education system in order to be granted a

    qualification certificate.

    The structure of the current education system is compliant with the four levels:

    a. Preschool education, from 3 to 6 years, is similar to the one in Romania and is not

    mandatory.

    b. The mandatory education starts at the age of 6 and usually covers 9 years or even 10

    years for children with disabilities or special needs.

    c. The secondary
