Scottish Vocational Qualifications (SVQs) are work-based qualifications. They work as a guarantee that someone can do their job well and to the national standards for their sector.
These qualifications put an emphasis on work-based activities and involve an assessor visiting site every 10-13 weeks to help the delegate with their portfolio and unit questions. Delegates study in the workplace while carrying out their normal day-to-day work. There are no formal written exams. People doing SVQs collect and submit evidence, usually from their own work.
The main eligibility criteria for the funding are that delegates must be in full time employment and have an employer contact who can sign off their paperwork. The evidence-based qualification also requires the delegate to be working in a relevant role to allow them to complete the qualification.
Education and training such as SVQs is an investment for businesses with more and more companies using these as an integral part of their strategy.
One huge point to note is that in addition to these qualifications being fully funded, if you are a CITB Levy payer you are still able to claim back your grant for this training.
