Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework

The Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF) promotes lifelong learning in Scotland. Through the Framework you can find out about all mainstream qualifications in Scotland and plan your future learning. The Framework supports everyone in Scotland, including learning providers and employers, by:

  • helping people of all ages and circumstances to get access to appropriate education and training so they can meet their full potential;
  • helping employers, learners and the general public to understand the full range of Scottish qualifications, how qualifications relate to each other and to other forms of learning, and how different types of qualification can contribute to improving the skills of the workforce.

Within the SCQF website, you can access an interactive framework, which explains each qualification.
