The main role of the MQA, as a regulatory body, is to be the guardian of the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) – a system designed to recognise the attainment of knowledge, understanding and skills by people in Mauritius; to ensure compliance with provisions for registration and accreditation of training institutions; to ensure that standards and registered qualifications are internationally comparable; to recognize and evaluate qualifications for the purpose of establishing their equivalence in the TVET sector and to recognise and validate competencies acquired outside the formal education and training systems.


The Human Resource Development Council (HRDC) was set up as a corporate body in November 2003 as per the HRD Act 2003. The setting up of the HRDC was inspired by recommendations of a report on National Integrated Training Strategy, prepared by an International Labour Organisation (ILO) consultant, whereby the need for an apex body that would guide and provide the necessary thrust for human resource development in Mauritius was felt.

HRDC has been vested with the responsibility to look after and promote the development of the labour force in Mauritius in line with the requirements of a fast-growing economy.
