Scottish Qualifications Authority is the executive public body of the Scottish government responsible for accrediting educational awards and is accredited by the UK government to offer educational qualifications. Being one of the four partner national organisations in the Curriculum for Excellence, SQA designs and develops new qualifications and assessments and has created the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF).

The SCQF supports lifelong learning and can help:

People of all ages and circumstances access appropriate education and training over their lifetime, so as to fulfill their personal, social and economic potential.

Employers, learners and the general public to understand the full range of Scottish qualifications, how qualifications relate to each other and to other forms of learning, and how different types of qualifications can contribute to improving the skills of the workforce.

The SCQF helps describe both programmes of learning and qualifications, supports the development of progression routes and maximizes the opportunities to transfer credit points between qualifications. The SCQF also helps to illustrate the relationships between Scottish qualifications and those in the rest of the UK, Europe and beyond, which can clarify opportunities for international progression routes and credit transfer.
