SURF Awards Shared Learning Workshop
May 4 @ 10:00 am – 12:30 pm
My Skills, My Future Workshop @ SCQFP, Glasgow
May 10 all-day

SCQF Partnership. 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.
