Since 1 April 2009, SQA Accreditation has had the remit to approve SVQ Structures, SVQ Assessment Strategies, Core Skills Signposting and SCQF Credit Rating of SVQs. This remit now includes the approval of Scottish Qualification Products which have been funded through the UK Commission for Employment and Skills (UKCES).
Scottish qualification project outputs will be subject to approval by SQA Accreditation via its Accreditation Co-ordination Group (ACG). This group also accredits qualification submissions from awarding bodies, giving it a strong basis for considering the qualification products developed by SSC/Bs to underpin these qualifications.
SVQ products requiring approval must include:
Non SVQ Products requiring approval must include:
SSC/Bs should send the following in support of the submission:
SQA Accreditation will acknowledge receipt of all submissions, but the SSC/B may be required to liaise with the Accreditation Manager and submit further information.
Further guidance on this revised process can be found on the SQA Accreditation webpage (www.sqa.org.uk/sqa/104.87.html) or alternatively, please contact the relevant SQA Accreditation Manager for further information.
