SVQ Courses

SVQ Courses at Ayrshire College

The Scottish Vocational Qualifications (SVQ) are nationally recognised awards that allow employed candidates to demonstrate competence in job-related skills in their area of work and expertise.

Variety of SVQ frameworks at different SCQF levels (for more information on SCQF levels please see: Know your Level - Individuals | Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (scqf.org.uk)) exist that cover most professions.

To achieve an SVQ award, a candidate needs to assemble a portfolio of evidence consisting of work products, direct observations, reflective accounts and similar which are all assessed by a VQ assessor to confirm that they meet the relevant National Occupational Standards.

SVQ are often financed by the candidate’s employer or as a part of an MA program, however candidates can also be self-financing (finance plans with the college are available, please inquire using the email below).

*Please note that the consent of an employer is necessary for a candidate to undertake an SVQ regardless of the means of funding.
