What is DIVA?

Media Student

The Digital Media and IT Vendor Alliance (DIVA) is a partnership between SQA and leading global companies in information and technology (IT) and digital media.

  • DIVA gives users of SQA’s mainstream qualifications access to industry-led curriculum and certifications.
  • Learners benefit from the substantial investment by vendors in high-quality, up-to-date resources for both teaching and learning.
  • Employers gain from development of workforce skills tailored for their immediate and future needs.

DIVA has been enriching IT and digital media qualifications in Scotland since 2004. Currently there are 14 global industry vendors within the alliance. Each vendor has a specific Memorandum of Understanding with SQA and an action plan that sets out roles, responsibilities on a recurring annual basis.
