SQA offers Playwork at Level 2, 3 and 4.
These SVQs are based on the National Occupational Standards (NOS) set and published by the Sector Skills Council for the sector, SkillsActive.
The standards provide an accurate and detailed definition of what candidates must know, understand and be able to do. These SVQs will enable those working in this sector to develop the knowledge and skills required to demonstrate competence in their job role.
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.
Centres interested in offering this qualification should come forward for approval and contact SQA's Business Development Team for guidance.
Assessors and verifiers must be able to meet SQA's general requirements for technical/occupational competence as outlined in the Systems and Qualification Approval Guide. The specific delivery requirements are set out in the Assessment Strategy.
