As part of the agreement, Learnful will be able to grant students formal University Credit on a number of its Professional Diplomas.  Following a rigorous process including due diligence, scoping, validation, audit and reporting the University agreed to Credit Rate five Learnful Professional Diplomas.

The process of credit-rating is when Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) evaluates training courses offered by an external organisation. The courses are evaluated against Scottish Certificate Qualifications Framework (SCQF) Guidelines and assessed to have a level and volume of credit that is attributable to the courses or ‘units’ concerned.  The process is undertaken as part of the University’s quality assurance procedures and all decisions taken in relation to credit-rating are subject to scrutiny and ratification by the relevant School Board of the University.

Graduates from the Learnful approved Programmes will be awarded 20 Credits at Level 8 on the Scottish Certificate Qualifications Framework (SCQF), equivalent to 10 ECTS.  The Programmes are delivered virtual live by subject matter experts using a state of the art interactive Learning Management System (LMS).  Successful graduates get a verified university certificate issued on a secure portal that is shareable with employers and colleagues on LinkedIn.

Commenting on the agreement Learnful Director Lorraine Doherty stated that she is delighted to enter a long term partnership with the Institute for University to Business Education (U2B) School within Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU).  USB’s focus on skills based programmes clearly linked to careers dovetails beautifully with Learnful’s mission to deliver today’s most in-demand skills.
