RQF Conveyancing/Probate Law and Practice

SQA are experts in developing relevant qualifications delivering the real skills, knowledge and progression routes in demand by employers and learners alike.

SQA offers four RQF qualifications in this area:

These Diplomas are jointly awarded with the Council for Licensed Conveyancers (CLC).

On successful completion of a Level 4 Diploma, learners will be able to apply to register with the CLC as a probate or conveyancing technician, which will provide an intermediate level of professional recognition whilst they continue their Level 6 Diploma studies.

Achievement of the Level 6 Diploma will meet CLC’s eligibility criteria to apply to be licensed, as an Authorised Person, to provide probate or conveyancing services to the public as a CLC lawyer.

The qualifications are based on standards set by CLC and can be taken as part of an Apprenticeship at Technician or Practitioner Level.
