The Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF) Partnership and Scottish Union Learning (SUL) have signed a Partnership Agreement committing to work together in encouraging employers to utilise the SCQF. The project will support effective workforce development, including increasing the number of learning programmes recognised on the framework which are owned by employers and unions and using SCQF to aid effective recruitment. The agreement was signed by Wendy Burton, Director of Scottish Union Learning and Aileen Ponton, Chief Executive of SCQFP. At the Scottish Union


Learning Conference in November 2015, Roseanna Cunningham MSP, Cabinet Secretary for Fair Work, Skills and Training and Grahame Smith, Scottish Trades Union Congress (STUC) General Secretary, spoke at the event about the benefits of partnership working. This Partnership Agreement


will highlight areas where the SCQFP and SUL share objectives to support the Scottish Government in enhancing the skills and employability of individuals while also creating high-skilled, high-productivity, healthy workplaces where this talent is fully utilised.
