Giving Something Back
Giving Something Back is important to us. Each SQA staff member has 21 hours a year in which they can support their local communitity.
SQA colleagues have worked with homeless charities, supported young people to improve their employability skills and planted a sensory garden.
European Funded Projects
Over recent years SQA has managed and been a partner in European Social Fund projects. These have enabled the creation of new qualifications and support materials across a wide range of curriculum areas.
DIVA is recognised as a strong project which has contributed significantly to Scotland’s portfolio of qualifications.
It has featured as an example of global best practice at the Davos World Economic Forum and supports collaboration between the education sector and industry.
We are part of the Scottish Government’s Digital Participation Charter that outlines how partners will work together to share information and resources in order to meet the outcomes - improved accessibility, inclusion and skills for all people living in Scotland.
