SVQs come in different levels to suit different types of jobs.

There are also Professional Development Awards (PDA)s which are a few units from an SVQ and also result in a recognised qualification and can actually encourage people to go and complete the whole SVQ.

Quest (Scotland) Ltd has been delivering SVQs for 15 years now and has an excellent reputation for learner achievement and quality training provision. All our assessors and verifiers are fully competent and continually develop their skills. We have our very own online SVQ portfolio called eQuest which means we can support you wherever you are in Scotland.

Quest delivers SVQs in a variety of subjects but also assists some companies by acting as their SQA Centre whilst supporting them to achieve Centre Status themselves.
