SQA

A framework for Training and
Competence


SQA is the national body in Scotland
responsible for the development,
accreditation, assessment, and certification
of qualifications other than degrees. SQA
offers a full range of qualifications which
are fit for purpose for the training and
development needs of a wide range of
occupational sectors.


Our qualifications are
available at various levels
and they are of different
sizes dependent on the
needs of the learner.



SQA also has international
experience and has worked
in countries across the
globe providing advice on
setting up and
administering qualification
systems. We respond
quickly to customer
demands and our pricing is
competitive.



In particular, we have a
large portfolio of
vocational qualifications
based on occupational
standards which are
flexible and are
designed to meet the
needs of industry.


Our organisational structure allows
us to operate on an account
management basis for major
clients. This ensures that
communications are effective and
efficient.



SQA has a partnership approach to
qualifications development and
works with organisations such as
COGENT, international oil
companies and national
governments to ensure that all our
qualifications meet the needs and
expectations of the industry.


SQA is targeting the oil and gas
sector as one of its key areas of
activity for qualifications
development.

Earlier this year SQA participated
in the
getenergy
conference in
Houston. We were the only
national awarding body to do so.


Our strategy involves a number of
components:




Work with Scottish FE colleges to
support developments domestically
& internationally




Work with industry partners
internationally




Develop a training & competence
framework for recognising skills
and knowledge internationally



The training and competence
framework will contain units and
qualifications which can be used by
companies and governments to
take candidates from basic training
to full technical competence.

The starting point is ‘Progression
Standards’ which provide the basic
skills, knowledge and
understanding. From here
candidates move to ‘Vocational
Standards’ which recognise full
technical competence.



The units and qualifications in the
framework will be levelled using
the Scottish Credit and
Qualification Framework (SCQF)
which will help in benchmarking
them against international
qualifications.


Oil companies will be able to use
their own training programmes
and match them against these
units where appropriate. This will
mean employees/trainees can get
a national/international
qualification which is recognised
and transferable.

Oil and Gas Training and Competence
Framework

The framework will be transportable
and will allow oil companies to use
it in a number of countries in a way
that suits the company’s own
training programme but which will
give reassurance to the host
country.
