Would You Credit It? @ SCQF Partnership Office, Glasgow
Nov 7 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

SCQF.

This workshop lasts for a full day and 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.
