Co-ordinator Update 31 May 2024

Verification update

Following the publication of verification outcomes, the NQ Verification team are available to provide support and guidance to your centre. If you receive a 'Not Accepted' decision following verification activity, we’ll send you information on what to do next.

If you need any help with verification outcomes, please call us on 0345 213 6766 or email

You must submit all follow-up materials for ‘Not Accepted’ verification decisions as soon as possible, and by no later than 17 June 2024. This will allow us to lift any certification holds in time for August certification.

Retaining evidence

You must retain all candidate assessment evidence for National Qualifications, including evidence for any of the freestanding units at SCQF levels 5, 6 and 7, until 31 December 2024.
