SQA L&D7 Facilitate Individual Learning and Development (Unit Accreditation)

We offer individual units of competence that you can complete individually or build towards a SQA qualification.

Overview of the qualification

The SQA L&D7 qualification is designed for learning and development practitioners who deliver training on a one-to-one basis through instruction, demonstration, coaching and mentoring.

The training can be delivered on your site. We can also look at a blended learning approach which combines classroom and online learning.

An overview of the qualification requirements

SQA L&D7 focuses on giving people the skills to:

  • Manage an effective environment for learning and development
  • Facilitate individual learning and development

We help learners to understand the skill set required to deliver and manage training on a one-to-one basis and the role of exercises and activities within the learning process.

Following attendance at the workshop or remote learning, learners progress on to further development and assessment.

What happens next?

Learners are supported throughout by a Polaris Learning consultant.

Learners will be issued an assessment pack and be required to complete candidate reports, a knowledge assignment and organise observations/videos of their training abilities as evidence for this competence based qualification.

Qualification pre-requisites

As this is a vocational qualification (on the job), learners must have the opportunity to complete the qualification.  We can discuss this with you and help assess whether the qualification is achievable.

Focusing on the workshop approach, this training would generally be carried out in a two day workshop.

In this workshop we cover:

  • Introduction to Competence
  • Organising and Preparing
  • Carry Out Assessments
  • Discussion and Questioning
  • Judging and Recording Evidence
  • Providing Feedback
  • Quality Assurance

Once your assessors complete the training workshops, they are then required to work through the rest of the qualification back at their workplace. Your assessors are supported throughout by a Polaris Learning consultant.

On successful completion of the qualification an SQA certificate is awarded.


This involves the provision of an online training process which includes the completion of formal knowledge assignments.  This would typically take one day to complete.

The online modules are:

  • Module 1: Introduction to Competence
  • Module 2: Organising and Preparing
  • Module 3: Carry Out Assessments
  • Module 4: Discussion and Questioning
  • Module 5: Judging and Recording Evidence
  • Module 6: Feedback
  • Module 7: Quality Assurance
  • Module 8: Qualification – What Next?

Following completion of the online modules and assessment planning, the learner completes the necessary work to generate the evidence required by the qualification back in their workplace.  This includes the assessment of two individuals.

We allocate each assessor with a Polaris Learning consultant who works closely with the learner. We build in a series of live webinars or on demand webinars to support the learning process. Client reporting is built in as standard so you can keep track of progress.

The duration of the programme can be organised to suit your requirements and we can facilitate the completion of this over a short or longer period of time.


We can also offer a combination of face to face, online and webinar support and this can be tailored to meet your requirements.
