Interacting with learning providers and Awarding Organisations
SfC&D partners work closely with Awarding Organisations (AOs) to support the development of qualifications that equip those working in the care sector with the skills and knowledge they need.
Some of these qualifications are also used to regulate the workforce in parts of the UK, so they are very important for making sure that services in the sector are of a high quality. In Scotland the key qualifications are Scottish Vocational Qualifications (SVQs), which sit within the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF). .
For principles and approaches to QCF unit/qualification assessment not already described in the Regulatory Arrangements for the Qualifications and Credit Framework please see Assessment Principles
