Please note that there is also a feedback form which gives you the opportunity to send us your comments and views on the standards, the qualification structures and the range of guidance currently available for the SVQs in Management.

Important information: As of 1 September 2016, all SVQs with an established SCQF level no longer include the SVQ level in their titles. Please note that our web pages and documents will gradually be updated over time as the SVQs are reviewed, so may still contain the existing titles. More information on SCQF levels can be found on our SCQF web page.
