SVQ5 Management at SCQF Level 11

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 SVQ5 in Management is aimed at senior managers to support the development of their leadership skills, implementation of change and promotion of knowledge management within their organisation. Although no previous formal qualifications are required to embark on the SVQ, participants will need to demonstrate substantial senior management experience.

Typical units:

  • Provide leadership for your organisation
  • Improve organisational performance
  • Ensure compliance with legal, regulatory, ethical and social requirements
  • Outsource business processes
  • Carry out quality audits


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.
