SVQ Management at SCQF Level 9

Our Scottish Vocational Qualifications (SVQs) are work-related, vocational qualifications that enable you to learn at your own pace in a way that suits you. They have been designed with the help of employers, which mean you're gaining the kind of skills that employers are looking for.

They also sit on the Management Apprenticeship Frameworks for Scotland.

Qualification purpose

The SVQ in Management at SCQF Level 9 is designed for middle managers who have a responsibility to manage business processes and contribute to the daily running of an organisation. Although no previous formal qualifications are required to embark on the SVQ, participants will need to demonstrate middle management experience.

Typical units:

  • Develop operational plans
  • Provide leadership for your area of responsibility
  • Develop and sustain productive working relationships with stakeholders
  • Manage business processes
  • Plan change
  • Manage people’s performance at work


These qualifications provide opportunities for progression to other qualifications at higher levels, which could also be work-based or more academically structured, or onto a Modern Apprenticeship.

The qualifications also support learners in meeting requirements for work and/or employment within all areas of management and leadership at this level.
