Review of Community Development SVQs

Last year, the National Occupational Standards (NOS) in Community Development reviewed and updated.

This year, II Aspire has been contracted to take this work forward, and we will be looking at the impact of changes to the NOS and how this may affect the corresponding Scottish Vocational Qualifications (SVQs).

The following products are being reviewed:

· SVQ in Community Development at SCQF Level 5

· SVQ in Community Development at SCQF Level 6

We have worked with industry to develop revised structures. An outline of the proposed SVQ structures as well as the average learner profiles can be accessed here:

Structure Options at proposed SCQF Level 5

Average Learner Profile


If you are involved in Community Development in Scotland, please take our survey, and have your say.

The online survey should take around 15 minutes to complete. The closing date for the survey is 12 noon on Monday 1st April 2024.

We greatly appreciate you taking the time to participate and the information you give us will help to shape these qualifications for your sector. We are keen to hear from as many key stakeholders as possible, so please forward this invitation to any of your colleagues or contacts who you think may be interested in contributing.

If you experience any difficulty in accessing the survey or any of the attached links or would prefer a 1-1 discussion in order to feedback your comments on the changes, please get in touch with Ruth Roy at

“I was delighted with the level of detail. It is very reassuring and I would like to that you for an excellent job and completing it so quickly.”

Qualifications Manager,

Scottish Qualifications Authority
