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 discussed your provisional results with you. You will then receive your Scottish Qualifications Certificate by post on Tuesday 10th August. SCQF credit points and levels are included in all Scottish Qualifications Certificates so understanding what this means will help you make better decisions about your future learning or career options.

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).
