Short description:
‘aufZAQ’ is a certification system for training courses for people active in youth work. It was developed in order to contribute actively to the recognition of non-formal education in the field of youth work in Austria and South Tyrol. Its development started in the beginning of the 2000s in the Federal State of Tyrol, where a large youth organisation started to develop the certification together with the Youth Department of Tyrol. In 2013 the Austrian Federal Ministry of Families and Youth joined the aufZAQ certification and the aufZAQ Office moved from the Youth department of Tyrol to the office of the Austrian National Youth Council in Vienna.
