GRAPHIC: Induction Guide for Centre Staff logo.



This Induction Guide has been developed for new teachers. It provides a flavour of the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) and what we do. It answers the questions most frequently raised by you and gives some broad pointers to further reading. I hope it will complement the induction information provided by your employer.

You have probably heard a lot about SQA. We are totally committed to working in partnership with you and supporting you throughout your career in education. We share many goals and objectives, one of which being the development of a fully trained and skilled workforce equipped with the knowledge and application to make Scotland a significant force in the world economy. 

In addition, we share with you a wish to see our candidates benefit from a rich, diverse and challenging curriculum, which realises their potential. Therefore, we work closely with and in support of educational professionals in meeting shared long-term aims and aspirations for our education system and workforce.

We look forward to working with you.  Good luck with your career.
