The Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) is a new way of recognising achievement through the award of credit for units and qualifications.
At present, it is hard to understand all the different types of qualification that learners hold - what level they are, how long they take to complete, what content they cover, and how they compare to other qualifications. The new framework will help present qualifications in a way that is easy to understand and measure.

Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework
The Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework is the equivalent to the Qualifications and Credit Framework. It supports everyone in Scotland, including learning providers and employers, by helping people understand the full range of Scottish qualifications. This includes how qualifications relate to each other and to other forms of learning, and how different types of qualification can contribute to improving the skills of the workforce.
