Methodology for Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF) Credit Rating

We provide guidance on how to calculate SCQF credit points and allocate SCQF levels to units and qualifications.

Credit Rating of SQA Accredited Qualifications for the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework is for any organisation submitting SCQF credit rating recommendations for SQA Accreditation to approve. This includes sector skills councils, standards setting organisations and awarding bodies.

The guidance is not prescriptive. You may use a different approach, but you must first check with SQA Accreditation to see if your method is suitable.

For further guidance or support on SCQF credit rating and levelling, please contact your SQA Accreditation Manager.
