Gaining new knowledge and skills opens up opportunities for you and when you get new academic and/or vocational qualifications, you earn SCQF Credit Points that may go towards further learning you may need to do. For more information on types of qualification along with the number of credit points,have a look at our interactive Framework.
If you are not sure what course or training is right for you then you can use the Framework to help you understand your options. You can get more information from your local Skills Development Scotland office or college. Further help on careers and learning is also available on My World of Work, a web service offered by Skills Development Scotland which includes a helpful course choices tool.
