Compare qualifications across the UK and Ireland

Support provided by Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework

What does this involve?

The 'Qualifications Can Cross Boundaries' leaflet allows you to compare qualifications and learning programmes across Scotland, England, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. This will help you to better understand the qualifications held by job applicants and allow you to compare them with Scottish qualifications on the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF).

The SCQF is Scotland’s national qualifications framework. It provides a way to recognise, describe and compare the difficulty and time required to achieve a range of qualifications and learning programmes. In addition to mainstream qualifications, the SCQF includes vocational and skills-based qualifications and learning programmes developed and delivered in the workplace or community.

The leaflet is available to download as a PDF file (947 KB).
