Personal Development Courses

Personal Development Courses aim to help learners become employable, contributing and independent members of society through the development of transferable life skills. Available at SCQF levels 2–6, the Courses encourage candidates to build a range of personal, social and vocational skills such as evaluating, planning, reviewing, managing tasks and working with others.

Candidates can target their own individual development needs and assessment is based around these individual needs.

These qualifications are available in schools and colleges.

For information about the Access 1 and 2 levels, please refer to the Access 1 & 2 website.
