Alternative assessment sites — further resources and guidance
We have launched a set of additional resources to support our Alternative Assessment Site Policy. We introduced the Alternative Assessment Site policy in 2018 to assist centres that wish to offer SQA qualifications through a delivery method, location, or country that is different to the approach originally agreed with us.
To help you more fully understand the Alternative Assessment Site application process, new online resources and guidance are now available on the SQA website.
How these resources will help you
- Enhanced guidance will make it easier for you to identify if your centre’s plans are feasible.
- An intuitive online form, that contains additional guidance, will help you complete your Alternative Assessment Site applications more easily.
- You will gain a better understanding of our approval process, including how we appraise your proposal and the type of responses we provide.
This will help make the Alternative Assessment Site process more streamlined and ensure a consistent approach for all centres — whether new or existing, or based in the UK or internationally.
If you require any support or have any questions, please contact your SQA Account Manager or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
