SVQ Children’s Care Learning and Development Review

Skills for Care and Development and the Scottish Social Services Council have recently reviewed the National Occupational Standards for the SVQs in Children's Care Learning and Development.  Through an incremental review, it was recognised that some of the Units required to be updated.

These minor revisions have now been approved by SQA Accreditation and an extension to the awards until the 31st January 2013 has been granted. The awards processing system (APS) has been updated with this information and centres approved for these awards can continue to register their candidates.

Please note that some Unit titles have changed slightly and a number of new Units have also been added to the optional sections.

The assessment strategy for these awards has not changed and the same criteria apply to the assessment and verification of the awards.

If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me or any of the Care Scotland Team.

We appreciate the patience of all our centres at this busy time.
