Update on IMI SSC SVQs and Diplomas

It has been agreed with SQA Accreditation, IMI SSC and awarding body organisations that the current IMI SSC SVQs and Scottish Diplomas (VRQs) in Light Vehicle, Heavy Vehicle, Motorcycle will be extended until 30 November 2016.   This is to allow sufficient time for the replacement qualification codes, approval of Modern Apprenticeship Frameworks and funding provision to be put into place.

As soon the new qualification codes are received, we will inform approved centres and update our systems.  Therefore there will be a short period of dual running of the old and new qualifications until 1st December 2016. 

Please note:

The IMI SSC SVQs in Paint will NOT be replaced on 1st September 2016, as previously stated.  It has been agreed with IMI SSC and awarding organisations that the Paint SVQs will be extended to 31st July 2017. This is to allow IMI SSC to review and amend the Paint Diplomas to ensure alignment with the SVQs in Modern Apprenticeship delivery.
