Remaining issues

The need to:

  • liaise with the Higher Education Institutions for ‘real’ articulation with year 3

  • liaise with potential HND providers to ensure that a single qualification is the best option for the HND

  • work with SSSC to ensure that the content of the HND reflects the emerging para-professional social work role

  • ensure that the Leadership and Management route articulates with the Leadership and Management for Care Services SVQs and the Leadership and Management Framework developed as part of the Changing Lives Implementation Plan

  • ensure that the qualification(s) provides a pivotal focus for the career development programme and milestones laid out in the Changing Lives Implementation Plan

  • ensure the qualification articulates with and meets the timescales, career and qualification needs laid out in Scottish Executive’s Response to the ‘National Review of the Early Years and Childcare Workforce: Investing in Children’s Futures’ (Scottish Executive Response, 2006).
