SQA responds to industrial action ballot

Saturday 20 April 2019

We have been, and continue to work co-operatively and collaboratively with our recognised trade unions. We are continuing with formal discussions about the issues raised under the auspices of ACAS and will meet again at the beginning of May.

The 2019 exam diet is on track. SQA is, as always, committed to ensuring that candidates receive their results on time. We have an established governance framework in place, where progress and risks are managed, supported by robust contingency plans.

SQA’s most valuable asset is our people. SQA is totally committed to the Fair Work Framework, and to providing everyone with the support, and career progression opportunities they require, to enable SQA to deliver for the people and economy of Scotland.
