MAC/Volunteering

SQA currently holds the prestigious Healthy Working Lives Gold Award.

Our award-winning MAC group is run by staff volunteers and promotes health and lifestyle choices.

SQA are committed to playing our part as active corporate citizens by sharing our expertise, skills and resources and creating partnerships which have a positive impact on our wider communities. The Hands Up volunteering scheme was introduced in February 2011, allowing staff to take up to 21 hours per year of company time to undertake volunteering.

The objectives of the employee volunteering programme are to assist staff in developing their skills, support SQAs equal opportunities policy and help the local communities.
