The SCQF is highly regarded internationally as a well-established national qualifications framework and the SCQF Partnership continues to be involved in a variety of projects, events and networks relating to educational and national framework developments in Europe and across the world.
There are currently over 150 countries across the world implementing or developing frameworks and several are based on the Scottish model, as a result we are regularly approached by Government Departments and statutory agencies from overseas looking for support on framework projects and associated initiatives and we have developed a strong reputation for providing tailored and relevant study visits and consultancy.
Quality, Relevance and Mobility
The SCQF is a lifelong learning framework based on credit and has been referenced to both the European qualifications framework (EQF) and the framework for qualifications of the European higher education area (FQ-EHEA).
Recent developments across Europe show signs of significant progress in national reforms of lifelong learning and the promotion of quality, transparency and mobility across the EU.
Working with the SCQF Partnership can help to contextualize these developments and, through good practice case studies, show how Scotland is moving forward to ensure that the Framework remains relevant and continues to meet the needs of Scotland’s learners.
With an increased focus on qualifications, quality and mobility, the SCQF Partnership is well placed as the National Co-ordination Point to be able to offer guidance and good practice on all aspects of the emerging tools and initiatives relating to these matters in Europe and more widely.
