Was worried it would be quite a 'dry' day of training however felt engaged throughout, and you both kept the day interesting and helpful.

Audrey Pollock, SSSC

Thanks for a very insightful day - it's given us a lot to think about & we know that we can get back in contact in the future when we have more questions.

Cat Kozlowski, Children in Scotland

Really clearly outlined the whole process and lot of very useful handouts and additional pieces of information. It was exactly what I needed to take my outline forward.

Duncan Sanders, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland

This was a great course and I would strongly recommend it as a starting point for anyone writing a course that they want accrediting. It will help you avoid unnecessary time wasting

Jane Wikinson, Coupar Angus Development Trust

Really enjoyed the session, thought it worked well doing it online. I appreciated have the morning session and the afternoon session with the two hour break in between, I thought that was a really nice structure.

Laura Beatie, University of Edinburgh

The workshop helped clarify the process for credit rating a programme and gave me the tools and knowledge to help make it happen.

Gail English, Social Enterprise Academy.

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.

Deirdre Hill, Edinburgh Steiner Teacher Education Course.

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.

George McCormack, Dupont Teijin Films UK Ltd.

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!

Vicky Wilson, Fife Council.
