The importance of understanding the SCQF for individuals receiving SQA results this summer
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the process of how you receive your SQA results is different this year. In June your teachers/lecturers will discuss your provisional results with you. Then you will receive your SQA certificate by post on Tuesday 10th August. SCQF credit points and levels are included in all SQA certificates so understanding the what this means will help you make better decisions about your future learning or career options.
Is that on the SCQF...? Qualifications in Funding Practice
The Foundation to Social Improvement (FSI) is a registered charity, established in 2007 to provide high quality training and support for small charities. We currently support over 8000 small charities throughout the UK by offering free or heavily subsidised learning opportunities. In 2017, the FSI approached the SQA to develop a suite of fundraising qualifications specifically for the Small Charity Sector. We now deliver a Diploma and Certificate in Fundraising Practice, both at SCQF Level 8 (RQF Level 5), and an Introduction to Fundraising Practice at SCQF Level 6 (RQF Level 3).

The Chartered Banker Institute - Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)
The Chartered Banker Institute (the Institute) is a professional body, authorised by the UK Privy Council to award the designation ‘Chartered Banker’. Many of the Institute’s qualifications sit within the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF), and whilst the SCQF is not a regulatory body, it has a role to ensure that the quality and integrity of the qualifications within the Framework are maintained. The Institute achieves this by being an SCQFP Approved Credit Rating Body (CRB).
Veterans to set their sights on recognition
A unique project to profile and recognise the skills of veterans will launch next month. The SCQF Partnership (SCQFP) will work with colleagues at Skills Development Scotland (SDS) and the Ministry of Defence (MoD) to develop an online skills profiling tool specifically for service leavers, to support them in understanding the skills they have gained in the military.
