Introduction to Recognition of Prior Learning @ 201 West George Street, Glasgow
Jan 22 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

SCQF Partnership.

A taster session aimed at anyone wishing to recognise the skills and experience that people pick up through formal or informal learning, life experiences and work.

The recognition process can be worked through with anyone of any age to build confidence or simply let them know where they are.

This workshop would be extremely useful for employers to enable them to recognise what skills their staff already have and identify any skills gap that they need to fill.

Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework Partnership.

This workshop will introduce participants in some detail to the SCQF and the criteria which will determine whether a learning programme is suitable for Credit Rating. It is designed to support individuals and organisations who are developing, or who already have, a learning programme which they are considering having Credit Rated for the SCQF.

The workshop will provide key information about the SCQF, how it can be used, and how Credit Rating processes are carried out. It will consider the development of programmes which are suitable for Credit Rating.

After completing this workshop, participants will have a sound knowledge of the SCQF and will be able to make an informed decision about whether a learning programme is suitable for Credit Rating and the next steps they need to take.
No detailed knowledge of the SCQF is required to take part in this workshop.

Key themes addressed over the day:

  • The SCQF – Key Facts
  • Meeting the criteria:
  • Learning outcomes
  • Assessment and assessment planning
  • The allocation of credit
  • Proposing an SCQF level
