Learning and Development SVQs are suitable for people working within training or learning development roles, with individuals or groups of learners. These awards require candidates to demonstrate competence in developing, planning, designing and delivery of training and learning programmes, and assessment and evaluation skills in learning and development contexts.
Level 4 is aimed at senior trainers, or training co-ordinators/managers who plan, deliver and evaluate programmes and/or have some management responsibility for others. Level 4 candidates would be expected to have responsibility for developing and implementing training programmes, and some management of trainers.
Entry is at the discretion of the assessment centre. As these are work-based qualifications, candidates must be working in a training role to ensure they are able to generate the required work-based evidence. SQA details: Learning and Development SVQs
