Scotland Needs Leaders – says Scottish Qualifications Authority

Posted: 11th November 2016

As part of their commitment to Scottish education, Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) is working with industry to develop SCQF credit rated qualifications across a wide range of sectors.

Scotland Needs Leaders

Strong leaders and great managers enrich the UK economy. In a recent CBI Education and Skills survey, 70% of companies said they believed they would need more people with leadership and management talent.

The need for strong leaders and managers applies to every organisation, from large multi-national companies to SMEs. Effective managers can provide direction, facilitate change and tackle difficult business challenges head-on with innovation. They can boost loyalty, morale and productivity, and help maximise business growth.

Creating Leaders

We support the creation of leaders and managers in all sectors.

Whether this is through our wide portfolio of leadership and management qualifications or by supporting companies to develop their own qualifications to meet their objectives, we can help you find the right solution for your staff.

Our qualifications suit every level of learning, are developed in close partnership with industry experts and are jointly-certificated with CMI.

Working with You

Experts in qualification and assessment design, we know about leadership and management skills and how to develop them.
