Learner Journeys

There is a wealth of information available regarding qualifications from different providers using terminology that is specific to the education sector. This can often lead to confusing messages for those providing advice and support to learners or indeed for learners themselves to understand.

The purpose of this guide is to provide information by occupational sector on the progression routes available to learners at Borders College. The Scottish Credit and Qualification Framework (SCQF) on page 4 provides the system to establish the level of difficulty of the qualification. The higher the SCQF Level, the greater the level of difficulty.

This Learner Journey booklet provides the potential routes learners can travel as they build their knowledge and skills and achieve qualifications. Learners can start and finish at various points on this journey depending on their existing qualifications, skills and experience.
