CIW Academic Funding for Scotland

Funding in Scotland
SQA logo

Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) is the national accreditation and awarding body in Scotland. SQA accredits vocational qualifications that are offered across Scotland, including Scottish Vocational Qualifications (SVQs), and it approves the awarding bodies that seek to offer qualifications other than degrees.

SQA Professional Development Awards (PDAs) are credentials that are designed mainly for individuals already in a career or vocation who want to extend or broaden their skills. PDAs may also be embedded within another qualification such as a Higher National Certificate (HNC) or a Higher National Diploma (HND). PDAs assess and certify progression in a defined set of specialised occupational standards.

The CIW certifications highlighted below are approved and available for funding for SCQF Level 7 through the SQA's PDA Web Technologies and PDA Web Site Design.

(For qualifications or learning programmes to be included in the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF), they must have their SCQF credit rating and level formally confirmed. SQA is a recognised Credit Rating Body for this purpose.)
