I've been linking with Colin on the CD SVQs
and he got an update on this at the end of last week. It looks like City and Guilds are
going to be contracted by the UK Commission for Employment and Skills to
review the CD SVQs - and by extension look at the potential for CD MAs in
Scotland. The person involved from the C&G team will
be Sharon Frazer. More info to follow when we have it.
Colin and I are keen for this piece of work to be
part of a wider review of the range and take-up of qualifications and accredited courses in
community development available in Scotland, including those available to community volunteers and activists.
