Raising awareness of SQA Accreditation
Through the year, we have promoted SQA Accreditation, to help raise awareness of our remit. Our Accreditation function is essentially a regulatory function, and by setting and specifying the requirements for accrediting qualifications, we are able to support the needs of learners and employers in Scotland. We also support the Scottish Government’s policy agenda — in particular, the skills strategy for Scotland, Skills for Scotland: A Lifelong Skills Strategy.
We offer a wide range of services, including approval and regulation of awarding bodies and accreditation of qualifications. Our team of Accreditation and Regulation Managers are allocated a portfolio of industry sectors and awarding bodies respectively. Through our extensive work with Sector Skills Councils, Standard Setting Bodies and awarding bodies across the UK, we have sector and qualification specific expertise which allows us to provide high quality, targeted advice across a broad range of areas.
