This contribution substantiates the necessity of transition from the concept of “qualification” to the concept of “competence,” since the competence approach to education reflects the requirements not only for the content of education, but also for the behavioral component, caused by insufficient consideration of the constantly changing demands of the labor market. The proposed sectoral qualifications framework should address the task of filling the national qualifications framework (NQF) to ensure transparency, comparability and recognition of qualifications, and training certificates. The authors define the essence and main characteristics of the sectoral qualifications framework, the purpose of the sectoral qualifications framework, the relationship between learning outcomes and descriptors of the NQF, the structure of the sectoral qualifications framework, the principles, the sequence and the general algorithm for developing the sectoral qualifications framework. Based on the studies, functional maps for the specific training profile “Management” have been developed. The choice of the training profile for the development of the sectoral qualifications framework is due to the fact that a scientific approach to management needs to be justified, because each managed system has its own properties and parameters, for the description of interrelationships which need analysis, planning, forecasting, decision making.
