Scotland: Standards and qualifications

To ensure you have skilled, knowledgeable and qualified workers, we work to produce flexible sets of qualifications using our National Occupational Standards.  To find out more information about our National Occupational Standards and their importance to careers and qualifications please follow this link.

We know how important these standards and qualifications are so we regularly review them to keep them up-to-date.
But with so many types of qualifications to choose from, choosing the right one for you can seem confusing.

To view some of the different types of qualifications in Scotland please follow this link to the SQA website

Modern apprenticeships are also a good way of gaining nationally accredit qualifications whilst in employment.  Find out about Modern Apprenticeships
