Maintaining security of SQA assessment materials

The SQA Secure website contains confidential assessment materials for centre staff to support the delivery of our qualifications. Your SQA co-ordinator can provide access to the materials.

To protect the integrity of the assessments and help to ensure fairness for all learners, you must take steps to maintain the security and confidentiality of the assessment materials. When using them, you must treat them confidentially and they must be stored securely when not in use.

If you refer to the assessment materials when engaging in professional discussion and collaboration with colleagues, please ensure that they are not shared or discussed online or in any other location where they could be accessed by unauthorised persons. In addition, please ensure that learners are fully aware that they must not discuss the content of the material with anyone – including on social media.

SQA supports centres by providing assessment support materials where possible. However, breaches of security may result in materials being withdrawn to maintain the integrity of the qualification and ensure fairness for learners.

Thank you for your cooperation and support.
