Scottish Vocational Qualifications

Scottish Vocational Qualifications (SVQs) tell you exactly what you have to do in a job.

They are based on national standards drawn up by people from industry, commerce and education, so if you have an SVQ, you have a way of proving that you can do your job well, to national standards agreed by whatever industry or commercial sector you are in.

SVQs send powerful messages to employers:

  • you can do your job confidently and to the right standards
  • you are motivated, confident and ambitious
  • you are ready to take on responsibility
  • you are committed to your work
