Scottish Vocational Qualification

These are nationally recognised qualifications based on National Standards which are drawn up by people from industry and education. SVQ’s are generally work based, however if you are not in employment we will put you in a voluntary work placement for the length of your SVQ. Learners can work at their own pace with as much or as little support as they need. Qualifications are only assessment based so there is no exam at the end of the course. The level 2 is taken over 12mths and the level 3 is over 18mths however these can all be achieved in 5–6mths depending on the individual’s work ethic.


Candidates can open their Individual Learning Account, if they are over 18 on benefit or earn £22,000 or less—they can get up to £200 which they can use towards their training.

Successful completion of the above SVQ’s will allow candidates to be registered with the Scottish Social Service Council at the appropriate level for their job roles.

Child care may be available whilst you study and discounts can be discussed on an individual basis.
