Value & Impact: ENHANCE Taxonomy


The ENHANCE Taxonomy is a valuable tool for structuring and categorizing educational concepts, objectives, and outcomes. It provides a systematic framework that helps educators organize, classify, and communicate learning goals and achievements. By establishing a clear taxonomy, educational institutions can enhance curriculum development, assessment practices, and instructional design.


The ENHANCE Taxonomy provides educators with a structured framework for designing curricula and instructional activities. Helps ensure that learning objectives are aligned with desired outcomes and that instruction is appropriately scaffolded to facilitate student progression. It supports assessment practices by providing a clear reference point for evaluating student performance. Educators can use the taxonomy to develop assessments that measure progress across different levels of complexity and enable meaningful feedback to support student growth. Additionally, an education taxonomy enhances communication among educational stakeholders, enabling educators, students, parents, and policymakers to have a shared understanding of educational objectives, achievement levels, and learning pathways.


The ENHANCE Taxonomy was developed using data from:

  • An online survey 734 respondents from HEIs, Industry and QA agencies;
  • 3 practice-dialogue workshops with 200+ attendees from HEIs, Industry, NGOs, GOs
  • 3 curriculum development workshops with 140+ participants from the ENHANCE partner HEIs
