Many employers have developed rigorous and challenging training that satisfies business need and is highly valued by staff but does not receive any recognition outside of the workplace. By having internal training SCQF credit rated your training will receive national recognition not just in Scotland but throughout the UK, Europe and beyond.
We are very pleased to be working jointly with both the employer and employees to find a way for Aegon training to receive national recognition and for employees to benefit by having the level of their knowledge, skills and understanding formally endorsed.
It is a mechanism for organisations, large or small, to formally allocate SCQF levels and credits to their learning and have that learning placed on Scotland’s national qualifications framework.
Any organisation wishing to formally acknowledge their in-house training or informal training sessions.
Any of the following Credit Rating Bodies (CRBs) are able to credit rate programmes on behalf of other organisations:
(* Please note that not all universities and colleges provide a credit rating service. We can advise you on who best to approach based on your geographical location and the expected SCQF level of your learning programme)
There are also a number of other organisations that are able to credit rate their own programmes only. Learn more about our CRBs.
They follow a consistent process of credit rating with guidance from SCQF Partnership.
Any programme has the potential to be included on the Framework, provided that the programme meets the following criteria:
We offer free one day Would you Credit It? workshops to help you understand how to prepare your learning and training programmes for credit rating and we recommend that you register for one of these once you have decided to go ahead.
To find out more about the SCQF and the process of having your learning and training recognised on the Framework, contact us on 0141 225 2922 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I found the Would You Credit It course a really enjoyable and informative course. It was an area I was not confident in but after the practical exercises and wealth of resources and information given, I feel more able to write suitable learning outcomes and levels of units!
If you are interested in either understanding the SCQF or formalising your company’s training programme, this course is really worth taking the time out for.
It was a really comprehensive introduction and even as a relative beginner I came out of it feeling confident and positive about embarking on a credit programme.
Full of information and clearly delivered, this workshop made learning about the process of becoming credit rated enjoyable. With many practical exercises, I feel I now understand what is involved and can start applying the skills and moving forward with our training programme.
