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

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
