Abstract

National Vocational Qualifications (NVQs) and Scottish Vocational Qualifications (SVQs) were introduced in the UK in the 1980s as part of a drive to improve the skills of the workforce. Within the Information and Library Services sector, S/NVQs are now widely accepted and have contributed to the broadening of access and policies of diversification in educational establishments at all levels. This Briefing traces the history and development of S/NVQs in the profession, outlines the benefits to both the organisation and the individual, and discusses some of the criticisms that remain.
