NextGen: HN Pilot Centre Update

Important information for session 2023 - 24

The Data and Certification project team can provide support throughout the candidate entry, results, quality assurance, finance, and certification process of your NextGen: HN pilot.

We would like to highlight some important information for session 2023 – 24. 

Candidate Entries and Results 

Candidate entries will continue to be processed through your normal data submission methods. This may be through  your own MIS or SQA Connect – Candidate Services. 

During the 2022 - 23 and 2023 – 24 session, colleges will be unable to result Group Awards using normal data submission methods. Alternatively, we have created a SharePoint site where Group Award results can be transferred to SQA securely.  However, unit results must still be processed via normal data submission methods.

Demonstration workshops on the SharePoint sites are being held with all pilot centres.  

Invoicing for NextGen: HN’s 

An invoice will be issued in March 2024 for all entries processed during the 2023 - 24 pilot phase of NextGen: HN. Entries received after March 2024 will be invoiced monthly.  

The price applied to NextGen: HN will be the same as traditional HNs - £103.75 for HNC, £125 for HND and £14.50 fee for students progressing from HNC to HND.
