Subject Approval

Subject ApprovalWe have a variety of qualifications that can meet your needs as an employer. Your centre must seek approval to offer specific SQA qualifications

During approval to offer specific qualifications we ensure that once you have decided on delivering a qualification your centre has the staff, reference and learning materials, assessment materials, and the equipment and accommodation you will need to deliver and assess the specific qualification. We will also check your internal verification system to ensure it meets our quality requirements.

An SQA centre number will be issued to you when you have successfully obtained centre approval and approval to offer your first qualification.

For both types of approval you must demonstrate your potential to meet our approval criteria. You will also have to show that you are continuing to meet our criteria following approval as you deliver and assess qualifications.
