Supply Chain Management
Welcome to the subject homepage for SVQs in Supply Chain Management.
SQA offers Supply Chain Management at SVQ Level 3, 4 and 5. These awards have been developed from the standards produced by the Sector Skills Council Skills for Logistics.
On this subject homepage, you will find information relating to the structure of each award and support materials.
SQA currently offers a suite of SVQs in Supply Chain Management at three different levels.
Supply Chain Management (SCM) is about managing the flow of information, materials, services and money across any activity, in a way which maximises the effectiveness of the process.
- SVQ 3 Supply Chain Management at SCQF level 7
- SVQ 4 Supply Chain Management at SCQF level 8
- SVQ 5 Supply Chain Management at SCQF level 11

SVQ in Procurement
The SVQ 3 Procurement SCQF level 6 has been successfully accredited from 02.04.2014 - 30.04.2019 and centres can now come forward to seek approval to offer the SVQ. This SVQ forms part of a new Modern Apprenticeship in Procurement.
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.
