Plain English at SQA

Plain English is about writing clearly and concisely with the reader in mind.

Using plain English is part of promoting equality, because by writing in a simple and straightforward way, we're not excluding anyone.

For guidance on plain English, and on SQA's house style, please see our style guide Writing for SQA (A to Z version) (949 KB).

If there's any language in any of our publications that you feel is hard to understand, or could be improved, please email:
