A comprehensive EQF-Referencing Report was jointly prepared by the (former) Federal Ministry for Education and Women’s Affairs and the (former) Federal Ministry for Science, Research and Economy, now together the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research. It specifies how the implementation process of the Austrian NQF complies with the ten referencing criteria as defined by the EQF Advisory Group as well as the criteria and procedural standards for the tertiary sector of the QF-EHEA. The report thereby demonstrates full compatibility of the Austrian NQF with the EQF and the QF-EHEA and was adopted by the EQF Advisory Group, Brussels, in June 2012. For current development of NQF/EQF (NQR/EQR) see here.

Based on high-quality scientific statistics and analyses, Statistics Austria draws a comprehensive and objective picture of Austrian society and economy. With the figures and data, Statistics Austria provides the basis for a fact-oriented public debate, empirical research and evidence-based decisions in society, politics and the economy, for example regarding the challenges in labour market, education and social and economic policy or sustainable financing of health, care and pensions against the background of demographic change.

Education in Figures 2020/21 provides a comprehensive overview of the educational situation in Austria. Selected educational indicators with short analytical background texts provide information on different educational areas such as school and university systems, adult education, educational pathways, the level of education and government spending on education.

A volume of tables, part of the publication Bildung in Zahlen (Education in figures), supplements the "Key indicators and analyses" volume and provides, comprehensive and detailed information on the school and university systems as well as key data on educational attainment of the resident population and on government expenditure on education.

The publication contains data on the number of schools, classes, pupils, students, graduations and teaching staff in Austria. Survey results are presented by all key personal and training-related characteristics and are also broken down regionally. Long-term time series give a quantitative picture of the development of the Austrian education system.

The COVID-19 pandemic affected numerous areas of life in 2020/21 and thus left its traces on education. Characteristics of the educational situation in the nine federal states can be found in a separate chapter. In addition to this, a separate volume of tables offers extensive detailed data from the fields of school and university statistics and additional key data on the educational level of the resident population and on state education expenditure.

This publication is available in German only.  


Education Policy Outlook, Austria (OECD) (Online ressource, book, ENG)

Education Policy Outlook: Country Profile Austria (Online ressource, book, ENG) / OECD. - Paris, 2015-

Shaping Responsive and Resilient Education in a Changing World:

Education systems operate in a world that is constantly evolving towards new equilibria, yet short-term crises may disrupt, accelerate or divert longer-term evolutions. This Framework for Responsiveness and Resilience in Education Policy aims to support policy makers to balance the urgent challenge of building eco-systems that adapt in the face of disruption and change (resilience), and the important challenge of navigating the ongoing evolution from industrial to post-industrial societies and economies (responsiveness). Building on international evidence and analysis from over 40 education systems, this framework endeavours to establish tangible, transferable and actionable definitions of resilience. These definitions, which are the goals of the framework (Why?), are underpinned by policy components of responsiveness (What?), which define priority areas for education policy makers. Policy pointers for resilience (How?) then illustrate how policy makers can apply these components in ways that promote resilience at the learner, broader learning environment and system levels of the policy ecosystem. Finally, a transversal component looks into the people and the processes undertaken in order to reach a given purpose (Who?). The report has been prepared with evidence from the Education Policy Outlook series – the OECD’s analytical observatory of education policy.

Austria’s Autonomy of Schools Package aims to strengthen schools’ and school leaders’ decision-making capacity while ensuring quality across the system and strengthening collaboration between schools. Measures give schools greater autonomy over the organisation of school time and learning groups so that these can be better adapted to student needs and the local context. The development of evidence-informed monitoring and quality assurance mechanisms has been a key pillar of the reform. The Federal Ministry of Education, Research, and Science has developed indicators on school quality such as learning outcomes, retention rates, school environment and educational pathways. The Quality of Schools Framework, launched in 2021, has also been important in this regard. Federal states can also bring together clusters of 2–8 schools to promote collaboration, the sharing of resources, and to support the smooth transition of students between schools. As of late 2021, pilot clusters existed in two Austrian provinces.

The effective use of school resources is a policy priority across OECD countries. The OECD Reviews of School Resources explore how resources can be governed, distributed, utilised and managed to improve the quality, equity and efficiency of school education.

The series considers four types of resources: financial resources, such as public funding of individual schools; human resources, such as teachers, school leaders and education administrators; physical resources, such as location, buildings and equipment; and other resources, such as learning time.

This series offers timely policy advice to both governments and the education community. It includes both country reports and thematic studies.
