SVQ Performing Engineering Operations at SCQF Level 4

Engineering and manufacturing

The SVQ Performing Engineering Operations at SCQF Level 4 is gained when all the necessary assessment routes have been achieved. The Centre will then be able to apply for the learner’s certificate of achievement. The learner will also receive a certificate of unit credit, listing all the assessment routes they have achieved.

If the learner does not complete the full qualification, they can still claim a certificate of unit credit for the assessment routes achieved. This will mean they will have proof of their ability and could complete the qualification at a later date.

Assessment routes can also be taken individually (stand-alone units). Qualification Manual must be used in conjunction with the delivery and assessment of any individual assessment routes to ensure that assessment requirements and methodologies are consistently applied.

There are no entry qualifications or age limits required for the qualification and/or units unless this is a legal requirement of the process or the environment. Assessment is open to any learner who has the potential to reach the standards laid down for the qualification and/or units.

Learners may use, aids or appliances during assessment, providing they do not compromise the standard required.

The SVQ in Performing Engineering Operations (PEO) at SCQF Level 4 has been designed for learners who are either:

• acquiring engineering competencies in a realistic, sheltered and controlled environment, these institutions could be schools, colleges, training providers, company training Centre s, HM Prison Services and the MOD training workshops, to enable a safe progression into the workplace/employment

• employed but require additional engineering competencies as part of an existing job role or to enable career progression
