SVQ Titling Convention

Scottish Vocational Qualifications (SVQ) title change

From 1 September 2016 SVQ titles dropped the SVQ level from qualification titles - only the SCQF level will be used.

For example, the old title was: SVQ 2 Floristry at SCQF Level 5

The new title is:SVQ Floristry at SCQF Level 5

Awarding bodies began to transition their accredited SVQs to the new titles from 1 September 2016. 

With many SVQ titles changing at the point of re-accreditation we expect it to take a number of years before all SVQs reflect the new titling convention.   

This change is to remove confusion with multiple levels being used in qualification titles and to promote knowledge and understanding of the SCQF.
