Approval for centres and SQA qualifications

Approval is the process which you would follow to:

Becoming an approved centre

  1. Systems approval confirms your centre has the management quality assurance systems to support the delivery, assessment and internal verification of SQA qualifications.
  2. Qualification approval confirms that your centre has the staff, reference materials, learning materials, assessment materials, equipment and accommodation needed to deliver and assess the qualifications listed on your application. Schools and colleges may get automatic approval to deliver some new National Qualifications.
