This qualification allows candidates to demonstrate competence in job related skills in the Social Services and Health Care sector.
The Level 2 Scottish Vocational Qualification (SVQ) in Social Services and Healthcare allows candidates to demonstrate competence in job related skills in their particular area of work. This qualification has been designed in partnership with the Sector Skills Council, Skills for Care and Development to ensure relevance to the sector.
SVQs are based on National Occupational Standards. SQA works in partnership with other organisations to ensure that National Occupational Standards (NOS) are relevant to the current and future needs of Scottish industries.
Individuals who are currently in employment and who wish to obtain a formal qualification.
The target audience for the SVQ in Social Services and Healthcare are people who are support workers in care home services for adults. It is a requirement by the SSSC that everyone employed in this capacity should be working towards the achievement of this qualification.
As assessment is normally carried out in the workplace this minimises any time learners would need to be away from their work and allows candidates to generate evidence based on the actual work they are carrying out.
Entry is at the discretion of the centre.
Candidates should be in a job or placement where they are carrying out relevant tasks and responsibilities which allow then to gather the required evidence.
Upon successful completion, learners will gain an internationally recognised qualification which guarantees that they have the skills, knowledge and abilities required to carry out their role successfully.
