Abstract: The development of National Vocational Qualifications (and Scottish Vocational Qualifications) has been generally welcomed by those employers who were concerned about the level of skills in the British workforce, and saw a move to improving skills training as a means of ensuring that Britain remained competitive in an increasingly global economy. It was clear that the amount of training undertaken by workers in many of our competitor countries was significantly greater than undertaken by comparable workers in Britain. The model chosen, competence-based education and training, is one which is currently attracting attention in other countries, including for example Australia. This short paper is intended to examine the implications of S/NVQs for the University Schools of Librarianship and Information Studies.
