Within the Partnership, we have extensive knowledge and expertise and are able to offer a comprehensive suite of themed and bespoke study visits for European and International visitors. 

We are part of many national networks and can access key players across the qualifications and education landscape in Scotland to provide comprehensive study visits to suit the needs of interested parties across Europe and internationally.

At the current time we are not offering any physical visits to our offices however if you would be interested in a Virtual Study Visit, please do contact us to discuss possible programmes, options and costings.

A typical Study group can learn about:

  • the SCQF, its origins, functions and operations and other UK frameworks, their implementation, commonalities and differences, use and benefits;

  • how we have embedded the SCQF over the last 20 years in Scotland

  • our experience in referencing the SCQF to the EQF and other NQFs and the impact assessment of NQFs

  • SCQF Partnership’s European and international engagement; experience and perspectives from government and social partners on how qualifications frameworks are benefiting learners.

  • Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) in Scotland


The content of visits can be contextualised to the organisational needs of the visiting groups.

Study groups can:

  • meet members of the SCQF Executive Team working directly with credit rating bodies and other framework users

  • hear from learning institutions implementing the SCQF and/or RPL

  • hear from a range of experts on the Scottish approach to lifelong learning and qualifications
