We will provide participants with information about the process of allocating SCQF levels and credit points and focus on practical activities to promote understanding of the processes involved.

The workshop will provide key information on how SCQF credit rating processes are carried out and will include practical exercises allowing participants to understand the allocation of SCQF Credit Points and how to use the SCQF Level Descriptors to allocate levels.
