7. What is the SVQ offered as part of the traineeship?

SVQ stands for Scottish Vocational Qualification, and it is a nationally recognised work-based award that officially recognises that the awardee has the skills, knowledge and experience to do his/her job. SVQs exist in virtually every profession, from business, IT and management to the creative industries, trades and legal services.

The qualification is based upon assessment (by trained assessors) of a portfolio of evidence, using experience from every aspect of the awardee's day-to-day working experience.
