The SCQF Partnership has been awarded the Investors in People Standard at Silver level.
The vision of the SCQF is ‘…of a Scotland where the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework actively supports individuals in reaching their full potential in relation to lifelong learning and utilisation of skills.’
Peter Russian, Chief Executive of Investors in People Scotland, presented the SCQF Partnership with the IiP award at a reception at the SCQFP premises recently.
Based on 25 years of leading practice, the Investors in People Standard is underpinned by a rigorous assessment methodology and a framework which reflects the very latest workplace trends, essential skills and effective structures required to outperform in any industry. Successful accreditation against the Standard is the sign of a great employer, an outperforming place to work and a clear commitment to sustainability.
IiP reps confirmed that the organisation’s particular strengths lie within Leading and Inspiring people, Empowering and Involving People and Creating Sustainable Success.
Aileen Ponton, CEO of the SCQF Partnership commented: “I am absolutely delighted that the SCQF Partnership has achieved silver in its recent accreditation. This has been met by a small number of organisations in Scotland and we are very proud to be added to that list. I would like to formally thank the team here at SCQF Partnership. We believe very strongly in delivering a professional, knowledgeable and user friendly service and this accreditation recognises that. To achieve silver we had to demonstrate commitment by all staff across a range of criteria, from communication, strategic development and decision making to career development and training. The accreditation has also provided us with some further areas to develop and the team will be looking at how we take this forward in 2017 in order that we can aim for gold at the next accreditation.”
