Certificates Attributes (Level, Credit, Grades)
All our courses have a level (1-8) assigned to them using the EQF (European Qualification Framework) reference system. The EQF is a common European reference system, which will link different countries’ national qualifications systems and frameworks together. All certificates are issued by TheEducators.com (unless it is stated otherwise).
Descriptors defining levels in the European Qualifications Framework (EQF), Each of the 8 levels is defined by a set of descriptors indicating the learning outcomes relevant to qualifications at that level in any system of qualifications.
- Knowledge: In the context of EQF, knowledge is described as theoretical and/or factual.
- Skills: In the context of EQF, skills are described as cognitive (involving the use of logical, intuitive and creative thinking) and practical (involving manual dexterity and the use of methods, materials, tools and instruments).
- Competence: In the context of EQF, competence is described in terms of responsibility and autonomy.

The Course credit, better known as continuing education credit (CEC) is a measure used in continuing education programs. Generally, a CEU is defined as 10 to 15 hours of participation in a continuing education program, with qualified instruction and sponsorship. CEC records are widely used to provide evidence of completion of continuing education requirements by employers, further education establishment, or simply for individuals to build their body of knowledge and expertise. The records also provide employers and education establishments with information on training pertinent to particular occupations.
The term CEC is in the public domain. Any organisation may award a traditional CEC without requiring any accreditation.
The grade printed on your certificate will be as follow:
Pass (45% – 55%)
Credit/Merit (56% – 75%)
Distinction (76% – 100%)
Diploma’s grade are weighted average of the grades of the courses you study (base on the courses’ levels and credits).
English Language Certificates
The Educators uses The Common European Framework of Reference for Language programs (abbreviated as CEFR) for Certification and Assessment of Language programs. CEFR is a guideline used to describe achievements of learners of foreign languages across Europe. The six reference levels (see below) are becoming widely accepted as the European standard for grading an individual’s language proficiency.
The Educators issues certificates for five of the six CEFR categories:
- Elementary (A2)
- Intermediate (B1)
- Upper Intermediate (B2)
- Advanced (C1)
- Proficiency (C2)
The Educators transcripts provides the learner’s grades in:
Reading, writing, Listening, and Speaking
Grades are indicative of learners ability to move on to the next level.
- Grade A is indicative of the learner’s ability to move on to the next level.
- Grade B shows that the learner requires more work before moving to the next level.
- Grade C means that the learner is at the early stage of the current level.
