Community Development SVQ update

10 Fully Funded Awards

In our last post in December, we discussed SVQ Awards in Community Development and the benefits they can bring to those working to support communities in the voluntary sector.  We are now delighted to have secured funding which enables us to offer 10 free Level 4 Community Development awards! To be eligible for this opportunity, candidates must be involved in the provision of adult learning in Glasgow City.

Thank you to those candidates who have already registered. There are still some places remaining so here are still some places remaining.  If you or a member of your staff would like the chance to consolidate your knowledge, learn best practice and boost your Community Development skills, then please contact svq@gcvs.org.uk to find out more.

SQA Confidence Rating

Every year, SQA send an external verifier to training centres who are delivering SVQ’s to ensure that high standards are being maintained in the delivery of the awards. Earlier this month, we met with our Community Development External Verifier and her subsequent report confirmed that SQA have ‘high confidence’ in our centre.  This means that candidates and their organisations can be assured that GCVS are delivering robust, effective qualifications which uphold the high standards of the SVQ’s.
