What is Credit Accumulation Transfer or CAT

Credit Transfer: This is the process where learners are able to register learning outcomes achieved in one qualification/part qualification at one date and have them counted towards another qualification/part qualification at a later date. Credit Transfer operates between qualifications/part qualifications, but more importantly between organisations or sectors. Credit Accumulation: This is the process where learners are able to register learning outcomes achieved in one qualification/part qualification at one date and have them counted towards the full qualification/part qualification at a later date. Credit Accumulation takes place within sub-systems, for example subject, programme, department, faculty, Institution, awarding body, educational sector, occupational sector, and country. In a full CAT system, these two processes are integrated, so that the credit which is accumulated within one sub-system may first have been transferred from another sub-system.
