Enterprise and Employability

PDA Framework G7PO 15

In December 2004, SQA launched three new awards in Enterprise and Employability.  These awards were designed in response to the Scottish Government's drive towards 'Enterprise in Education', the CBI Scotland's template for employability and the positive results for a consultation undertaken with schools, colleges and training providers throughout Scotland.  These awards are as a result of SQA collaboration and partnership with SFEU, Equal Scotland, SWELL and Careers Scotland.  Each of these awards consists of 6 credits with 240 notional hours.

This award is supported by 'Get into BUSINESS' teaching and learning materials.  The Unit Getting Started in Business is wholly supported by the material and successful completion enables the candidate to apply for Business Gateway's Youth Business Start-up Grant.  Assessment exemplars for the units Getting Started in Business and Personal Enterprise Skills will be made available, details of which shall be published on our website.
