Scottish Credit a Qualification Framework
The SCQF is a way of comparing and describing Scottish Qualifications. It covers the qualifications you will achieve at School, College, University and in the Workplace. It does this by giving each qualification a level and credit points.
The level of qualification shows how difficult the learning is. The credit points shows how much time it takes you to achieve that qualification. The SCQF helps you make sense of qualifications and plan the next stage of your learning journey. You can also compare vocational and more traditional qualifications and see that, although they are very different types of learning, in many cases they sit at the same SCQF level.
