IQN qualifications are recognised on the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF). The SCQF is one of the national qualifications frameworks in the UK and is managed by the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF) Partnership. The SCQF Partnership includes members from the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA), College Development Network (CDN), the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) and Universities Scotland.
Through credit rating process, IQN qualifications have received SCQF credit points, which show how much learning has been achieved, and a SCQF level which shows how demanding the learning is.
Only qualifications which are recognised are listed on the SCQF database. Use the weblink below and search by IQN as "programme owner".
IQN qualifications are recognised on the SCQF by meeting criteria of learning outcomes, a minimum 10 notional learning hours, formal assessment, quality assurance etc.
For SCQF recognition, IQN qualifications are quality assured by the respective SCQF credit rating bodies. IQN qualifications are subject to external monitoring by University of the West of Scotland.
The SCQF recognition ensures that IQN qualifications are recognised not just in Scotland but across the rest of UK and Europe. The SCQF recognition helps students relate IQN qualifications to nationally recognised qualifications. The SCQF recognition adds value to IQN qualifications and does give IQN an edge over other global qualification providers. The SCQF recognises the learning achieved by IQN students, thus improving their morale and self-esteem.
