Would You Credit It? @ SCQF Partnership Office, Glasgow
Sep 6 all-day

Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework. 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. No detailed knowledge of the SCQF is required to take part in this workshop.

My Skills, My Future Workshop @ SCQF Partnership Office, Glasgow
Sep 13 all-day

Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework.

The SCQF Partnership is pleased to be able to offer a one day free workshop for those wishing to use the ‘My Skills, My Future’ suite of resources to support individuals in identifying the skills they have gained from other experiences outwith formal qualifications.

The aim of the workshop is to help advisers fully understand the resources and their benefits to individuals. It also offers the chance to try them out through a series of practical activities including benchmarking skills to the SCQF.

Advisers from a wide range of organisations can then use these resources with individuals over one or more sessions to identify their transferable skills through a series of practical and engaging activities. These skills are then benchmarked against the SCQF to help individuals understand the level of their informal learning.

During this session we will be working our way through the revised and improved ‘My Skills, My Future’ Toolkit.

Based on a review report that was carried out in February 2016, and feedback from focus groups involving industry professionals, the decision was taken to bring to the resource up to date. The essence of the toolkit remains very much the same but the new version has been professionally designed, with the content reviewed for enhanced usability and more meaningful imagery throughout.

Sep 19 @ 9:30 am – 1:00 pm

Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework.

*This workshop is only open to those that have previously attended a ‘My Skills, My Future’ Workshop

The SCQF Partnership is pleased to be able to offer a half day free workshop for those wishing to revisit the ‘My Skills, My Future’ suite of resources to support individuals in identifying the skills they have gained from other experiences outwith formal qualifications.

The aim of the workshop is to help advisers ‘refresh’ their knowledge of the resources and their benefits to individuals. It also offers another chance to work through some of practical activities including benchmarking skills to the SCQF.

On completing this ‘Refresher’ session advisers will hopefully feel confident using these resources with individuals over one or more sessions to identify their transferable skills through a series of practical and engaging activities. These skills are then benchmarked against the SCQF to help individuals understand the level of their informal learning.

During this session participants will be working through the revised and improved ‘My Skills, My Future’ Toolkit.
