SVQ4 Management at SCQF Level 9

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 SVQ4 in Management 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:

  • Manage business processes
  • Develop productive working relationships in your area of responsibility
  • Develop personal networks
  • Recruit, select and keep colleagues
  • Manage physical resources


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.
