The Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF) is Scotland’s national qualifications framework. The Framework helps people of all ages and circumstances to access the education and training that is appropriate to them over their lifetime. It can help you plan your learning and develop progression routes to follow, whatever your situation may be. The Framework is for all learners, whether you are:

  • At school
  • At college or university
  • An adult returning to education
  • Considering getting into learning
  • Wanting to re-skill or change career, perhaps after being made redundant
  • A student from outside Scotland
