The Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework Executive team, in partnership with Skills Development Scotland (SDS), has now completed a series of 7 video clip case studies which showcase a range of joint projects which have taken place over the last year.

Many of the projects were with employers in the Government Economic Strategy key sectors and highlight a range of ways in which the SCQF can support employers in areas such as improving workforce development and promoting effective recruitment.
The majority of the case studies are of larger employers such as Microsoft and Apex Hotels but there are also case studies which highlight work being undertaken by the Scottish Youth Theatre and individuals who have progressed within their learning with the support of their employer.

Julie Cavanagh, Manager at the SCQF Partnership said: "We are very pleased to have completed a number of projects in partnership with SDS and these video clips showcase some of these projects. They also importantly highlight the versatility of the Framework and the many ways in which it can be used to support employers"

Many of the clips can be found in the learners parents and carers, and employer section of the SCQF website.

Danny Logue, Director of Operations at Skills Development Scotland, added: "We have been working closely with the SCQF to support learners and to help businesses develop their workforce. Through this partnership, SDS is helping to identify businesses which support projects in Scotland's key sectors and to work with them to strengthen their skills base - a key input to support our industries' progress back to significant growth."

The SCQF Partnership has now embarked on filming a further 7 case studies many of which will highlight the projects we have been undertaking with organisations that work with young people. The aim of this work is to encourage more learning provision which recognises the achievements of young people including those in the More Choices More Chances group, to be recognised on the Framework. The further 7 case studies should be completed by the end of the year.

"Through this partnership, SDS is helping to identify businesses which support projects in Scotland's key sectors and to work with them to strengthen their skills base."
