What are the benefits of SVQs for your business?

  • They are a cost-effective and proven way of upskilling your staff, making your business more compliant, productive and professional.

  • In some industries like healthcare, some workers may be required to undertake an SVQ after a certain amount of time working in that sector by organisations such as the SSSC.

  • Offering SVQs to your employees shows you take their career progression seriously and are committed to investing in them and believe in their value.

  • SVQs can be done over a period of time and are generally very flexible, allowing the time your staff spend away from work completing the SVQ kept at a minimum.
