Did you know that your potential employees can better understand the skills needed for the role if you use Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF) levels in your recruitment process?
By using SCQF levels rather than specific qualifications in job adverts, employers can widen the pool of potential applicants who may have a variety of qualifications, skills and experience at the required level. You can recruit the right person with the right skills into the right job which is good for the organisation’s productivity and employee satisfaction.
Being an SCQF Inclusive Recruiter helps employers to:
- promote equality of all qualifications
- properly benchmark skills of employees/applicants to any job role
- broaden the pool of potential job applicants
- comply with government policy.
To become an SCQF Inclusive Recruiter, employers are asked to watch and answer some simple questions on a short training video. They then sign a memorandum of understanding agreeing to incorporate SCQF levels into their recruitment processes. The employer can then use the SCQF Inclusive Recruiter logo on their website and recruitment materials. The employer logo is also added to an SCQF Inclusive Recruiter ‘wall’ on the SCQF website to promote their status.
