Subject benchmark statements for professional qualifications in Scotland

The benchmark statements for qualifying awards for professions in Scotland have been developed and published jointly by QAA, the relevant professional body and the Scottish Government.  The statements bring together the academic and practice-based elements of programmes and the relevant professional requirements or National Occupation Standards.
Benchmark statements are available in the following subject areas.
The following benchmarks are due for review and QAA Scotland in partnership with NES (NHS Education Scotland) will be taking this forward in due course. More details will be provided when they become available.
