    Abstract

    From April 2004 until March 2008 a project examining the ways in which the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework could be embedded in the social services sector was undertaken by and managed through the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC), As part of this project, a pilot examiningcredit transfer to degree programmes in social work was commissioned. Universities are developing different arrangements for advanced entry to the degree in social work either through credit transfer from courses such as the HNC in Social Care, SVQ3 in Health and Social Care or though informal experiential learning. This pilot study explores how prepared students are for a social work honours degree course and what supports they might need when they are admitted from employment or from the HNC Social Care or SVQ3 with advanced standing (http://www.scqf.org.uk/ForEmployers/SCQF-Social-Services-Sector.aspx).
