Scottish Vocational Qualifications (SVQs) in Community Development Work have been available for a number of years, but have not been widely used. They include mandatory and optional units based on the Community Development National Occupational Standards.
National and local organisations including the CLD Standards Council are supporting a Review of these qualifications, liaising with the SQA and Skills Development Scotland. The Review will consider: the level of need for the SVQs; the content of the qualifications; credit rating; and the possibility of establishing a Modern Apprenticeship in Community Development.
Please email Contact@CLDStandardsCouncil.org.uk if your organisation would like to be involved in:
- Passing on information and raising awareness
- Helping identify the need for the SVQs and who will benefit from them
- Taking part in credit rating and leveling revised qualifications.
