Recruitment: Co-opted Director and Chair

The SCQF Partnership is looking for a co-opted Director to SCQF Partnership Board, who will also act as the Chair of the Board’s Quality Committee.

The current postholder, Malcolm Foley, is retiring from the role in March 2024.  

The SCQF Partnership has a staff of 12 based in central Glasgow.  It is a company limited by guarantee and is a Scottish registered charity. The SCQF Partnership has a Board of Directors which comprises the senior officer (Chief Executive) from each of the following organisations:

  • College Development Network;
  • Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education;
  • Scottish Qualifications Authority;
  • Universities Scotland.

In addition, the Board may co-opt up to two Directors. One of those co-options is reserved for the Chair of Quality Committee and it also currently has a co-opted Director representing employer interests.

The Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF) supports individual learners and exists to sustain a vibrant lifelong learning culture in Scotland.

In order to maintain the quality and integrity of the Framework, the Board appoints a Quality Committee to oversee all of the work related to the approval and monitoring of Credit Rating Bodies, all work linking the SCQF to European or International Frameworks and the development of principles, criteria and guidance for the process of credit rating.

Further detail on the role of Quality Committee, plus the role of the Chair can be found in the annexes. Please note that because of the potential for conflict of interest we cannot accept applications from anyone currently employed by a Credit Rating Body. To apply, please send your up-to-date CV and covering letter/supporting statement expressing why you are interested in this opportunity and your suitability to Beverley Wallace, Senior Administrator, at b.wallace@scqf.org.uk                                                             

If you would like to discuss the role in further detail please contact Pauline Radcliffe, Chief Executive, at p.radcliffe@scqf.org.uk or on 07824865019.
