Yes the ‘Managing People Professionally’ and ‘Professional Interpersonal Skills with Patient and Relatives’ courses are both accredited and pegged at Level 5 with the MQF. City of Glasgow College is the Credit Rating Body. For more information visit:

Each student will need to achieve a minimum of 85% attendance and a pass in the assessment.

The assessment involves written pieces of work that are developed during the course of the programme and are to be submitted at the end of the course as part of a professional portfolio. These shall be assessed by the lecturer and quality assured by the Credit Rating Body.

In the unfortunate event that a participant does not pass the assessment, s/he will have the option to resit and if that fails the student will be awarded a certificate of attendance on the course. This certificate does not carry any credit rating and is not pegged to the MQF.

In the event a participant does not obtain the 85% attendance requirement by the end of the course, the person can recoup the missed class with other groups being organised during the year. If the participant does not follow additional classes to make up the 85% attendance, he/she will not receive any certification.

The trainers take the attendance during each session. You are responsible to make sure that you sign the attendance sheet so that you are registered for the module. No amendments to the attendance sheets shall be made post training session, even in cases where the participant claims having forgotten to sign the said attendance sheet.
