ICAS achieves unique status with the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework.

ICAS has been recognised by the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework(SCQF) Partnership as a Credit Rating Body.

The recognition means ICAS is now one of six SCQF approved Credit Rating Bodies which, along with the Scottish Qualifications Authority, universities and colleges, is allowed to make its own credit rating decisions.

To become a Credit Rating Body, ICAS had to demonstrate that it had robust quality assurance processes and a rigorous approach to qualifications development and credit rating.

As part of this exercise the CA qualification was credit rated at Level 11 (equivalent to a Masters Degree) on the SCQF Framework.

ICAS CEO Anton Colella said, "We are delighted at becoming an SCQF Credit Rating Body…it was a major development for our Education team and I believe this will have a significant impact on what we do and how we do it."
