This means that we consider that your centre has the potential to support the delivery and assessment of specific SQA qualifications. We may make recommendations to help you to enhance your delivery and assessment of our qualifications.
Not Yet Approved
We will make this decision if we consider that you are not yet able to meet one or more of the approval criteria, for example:
- centre approval: if there is a lack of documented procedures such as, the absence of an appeals procedure or you have not yet met the requirements to become approved to offer your first specific qualification
- specific qualification approval: specialised equipment not available, inadequate learning or assessment materials not measuring the stated performance criteria of specific qualification.
The letter informing your SQA Co-ordinator of the decision may include an offer of further assistance from SQA.
What happens after approval
When you have received formal approval from us as a centre, you can start to enter candidates for our qualifications.
We will regularly monitor how you quality assurance our qualifications. As you become more experienced and provide a record of satisfactory delivery and assessment of our qualifications the monitoring frequency may be reduced.
