It is recommended that the centre seek prior moderation for the alternative method to ensure that the Core Skill is still covered. The Unit specification will detail the Core Skills covered within the Unit.

The SCQF provides the national common framework for describing all relevant programmes of learning qualifications in Scotland. The level a qualification is assigned within the framework is an indication of how hard it is to achieve. There are 12 levels, from level 1 for Access 1 through to level 12 for doctorates.
