New accommodation move for SQA approved

The Scottish Government has announced that plans to relocate our Midlothian accommodation from Dalkeith to new, fit-for-purpose facilities at Shawfair Park, also in Midlothian, have been given the go ahead.

We have been exploring options for addressing our current outdated and inefficient accommodation at Ironmills Road  in Dalkeith for some time, a task made difficult by the rapidly changing property market. The decision announced on Monday 1 March by Minister for Skills and Lifelong Learning Keith Brown will enable us to move into modern accommodation that meets our needs for future years and remain based in Midlothian.

Construction is to be completed towards the end of 2011 with an expected move in date shortly thereafter.
