Actif4 has gained approval for our leadership programme and been granted Approved Centre status by the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA). With the approval, Actif4 is now able to assess delegates and award the Actif4 Leadership Diploma at SCQF level 10, which equates to a degree-level qualification.


The programme has been designed for people going through the transition into leadership and those already in senior roles with the aspiration and potential to rise further. The demand for effective leadership has never been greater. Becoming a skilled leader is a continuous process of development and experience, coupled with understanding new insight and ideas. 


The Actif4 Leadership Diploma was developed by Actif4 Limited and is certificated and quality assured by SQA as a Customised Award. This award has been credit rated by SQA at Level 10 on the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF) with 48 credit points.


Actif4 completed a rigorous and robust application process which involved scrutiny of quality assurance, tutorial and marking procedures, and many other aspects before earning the right to be known as an SQA approved centre.


This means that when you go through the Actif4 Leadership Programme, you can be assured that all aspects of our training delivery meet the high standards required under the SQA approval process.

SQA’s Qualifications are aligned to the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF). The SCQF is a way of comparing qualifications; it covers achievements such as those from school, college, university, and many work-based qualifications. 


The SCQF also illustrates the relationships between Scottish qualifications and those in the rest of the UK, Europe and beyond, which can clarify international progression routes and credit transfer.


This analysis provides further understanding of the value of SQA qualifications, the calibre of those who have achieved them, and how they compare with programmes of study offered around the world.
