FEES

The College currently operates a part-time tuition fee waiver policy for people in receipt of some types of Benefit. Please contact Student Services to see if this applies to you.

Individual Learning Accounts (ILA) could provide up to £200 funding towards your course fees. Anyone earning up to £22,000 per year may be eligible for support, please contact Admissions on 0800 052 7343 or ILA on 0808 100 1090 for further information. A Professional and Career Development Loan is a bank loan. You make an agreement with a participating bank to borrow an amount between £300 and £10,000. Then once you have stopped studying, you pay it back in the normal way. The difference with a Professional and Career Development Loan is that the Young People’s Learning Agency (YPLA) pays the interest on the loan while you are studying and for one month afterwards. After this, you will pay interest at the rate fixed when you took out the loan. Interest rates on the loans are set to be competitive with other ‘unsecured’ personal loans that are commercially available. As the Professional and Career Development Loan is a commercial loan product, they should only be considered as an option once all other student funding options have been investigated. For further information call Next Step on 0800 100 900 or visit www.direct.gov.uk/en/EducationAndLearning/AdultLearning/FinancialHelpForAdultLearners Our learning provider registration number is 5299 Overseas and international students please contact Hazel Mulberry, International & European Liaison Officer on 0141 581 2277 or email: hmulberry@reidkerr.ac.uk for further information regarding fees.

SCOTTISH CREDIT & QUALIFICATIONS FRAMEWORK (SCQF)

SCOTTISH CREDIT & QUALIFICATIONS FRAMEWORK (SCQF)

The Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF), has been designed to enable learners, employers, parents and those involved in providing education to understand how Scottish qualifications relate to each other. The framework was developed in partnership between the Scottish Executive, Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA), Universities Scotland and the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education. It brings most mainstream qualifications from Access 1 (SCQF Level 1) to Doctorate Degree (SCQF Level 12) into a single framework.

4

Every qualification currently in the framework has been assigned an SCQF level and credit value. The SCQF level is a measure of how demanding a qualification is. A notional 10 hours of learning is given 1 SCQF credit point. Qualifications placed at the same level indicate that the level of learning gained in each qualification is comparable but not the same in content or purpose e.g. Level 8 contains HND and SVQ level 4 awards. SCQF information is now included on all Scottish Qualifications Authority Certificates.
