The Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework Partnership promotes lifelong learning in Scotland. Through the Framework (see picture above) you can gain a better understanding of qualifications in Scotland and plan your future learning. The Framework supports everyone in Scotland including learners, learning providers and employers.
By using two measures, the level of a qualification or learning programme and the number of credit points awarded, the Framework helps you understand and compare the various Scottish qualifications. The level of a qualification indicates the level of difficulty and the number of credit points indicates the length of time it takes to complete.
