So you’ve been in the armed forces and about to enter civilian life in Scotland. There’s a lot to think about and one of the main priorities may well be getting a job or entering further learning.
You’ll have gained some qualifications whilst being enlisted, not to mention a whole wealth of skills and experience. But what does this all mean? That’s where the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF) can help...
To find out more about the skills you developed in service and how your service qualifications relate to Scottish qualifications, have a look at the Skills Discovery Tool on Skills Development Scotland’s My World of Work website.
This will help you see what skills to highlight in your CV and application forms, and tell you the broadly comparable SCQF level of qualifications taken in service. Soon, the tool will also be able to make suggestions for potential career paths based on your skills profile, helping you to make decisions about your future career and learning.
To find out how to use this tool, have a look at our walkthrough below.
There may be qualifications that you gained whilst serving that are not listed. If you are unsure, then drop us a line on firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 0141 225 2922.
Skills Discovery Tool
Throughout your time in service, you may have developed a wealth of skills and experience which would be very valuable to an employer, even though you may not hold a qualification to prove this. To help you understand what SCQF level you are working at, have a look at our Know Your Level Tool. This will help you to know which jobs you might be suited for and what level of further learning would be right for you.
