Care SVQs

Scottish Vocational Qualifications (SVQs) are gained based on evidence of the way that you do your job and are perfect for advancing in your chosen field.

Some SVQs may even be legally required to do certain jobs.

They are based on standards of competence and are designed to benchmark people's skills by recognising the job-related skills and knowledge people need in work.
