SVQ3 Management at SCQF Level 7

Our Scottish Vocational Qualifications (SVQs) are new 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.

Qualification Purpose

The SVQ3 in Management is aimed at managers who have a responsibility for supporting the development of a team and contributing to planning, problem solving and decision making. Although no previous formal qualifications are required to embark on the SVQ, participants will need to demonstrate first line management experience. 

Typical units:

  • Manage your own resources
  • Allocate and check work in your team
  • Encourage innovation in your team
  • Participate in meetings
  • Initiate and follow grievance procedure


These qualifications provide opportunities for progression to other qualifications at higher levels, which could also be work-based or more academically structured. The qualifications also support learners in meeting requirements for work and/or employment within all areas of management and leadership at this level.
