SVC Recommendation 8: Recognition of Qualifications and Skills

The Veterans Employability Strategic Working Group (see Recommendation 1) should produce a plan for building understanding and recognition amongst Scottish employers (especially SMEs) of the skills and qualifications gained in the military. The Group should also consider whether the current system for translating and mapping qualifications could be simplified and how it might be better utilised and understood.

Scottish Government update:

This is being taken forward by the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF) and is being supported by £19,000 of funding through the Scottish Funding Council (SFC). The SCQF steering group, consisting of members from SDS, CTP, SFC, and Scottish Government reported on the first phase of exploratory work in March 2019. Further funding has been provided to the project by SFC to continue with this work.
