The vocational qualifications system is changing to become more responsive to the specific needs of employers. The content of qualifications will cover what employers want so people get the right skills for the job at the right time.
The qualifications listed below are available to employers in the Asset Skills footprint on the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF). This is a method of recognising skills improvement by awarding credits for qualifications and units completed (small steps of learning).
National Vocational Qualifications (NVQs) and Scottish Vocational Qualifications (SVQs). Read more about the different levels set by the Qualifications Curriculum Authority (QCA) and Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA).
