In December 2010 the National Steering Committee on National Vocational Qualifications Framework (NVQF) was set up by the Executive Secretary of the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE). Members of the Committee come from various Ministries, Departments and industry organizations. The purpose of the Committee is to come up with a draft National Vocational Qualifications Framework for Nigeria containing levels of attainment, level descriptors, quality assurance mechanism of qualifications, registration of training centres, and required legal framework and involvement of the industry.
The draft report of the Committee comprises 6 qualification levels:

Level 1: Entry Level or unskilled employees
Level 2: Foundation or basic skilled employees
Level 3: Operators or semiskilled employees
Level 4: Technicians, craft, skilled and supervisory employees
Level 5: Technical and junior management positions
Level 6: Professional engineers and senior management positions

NBTE and other key stakeholders of NVQF have partnered with International Labour Organization (ILO) for the development of National Occupational Standards (NOS) in Nigeria.
