Joint statement from SQA and Colleges Scotland

18 December 2020

SQA and Colleges Scotland thank all staff for their continuing help and support in dealing with the challenges which continue to face us all in session 2020-21.

Over the last few months, key stakeholders have worked together to develop a number of necessary changes to the assessment, and quality assurance procedures for Higher National, and vocational qualifications in 2020-21.

SQA and Colleges Scotland continue to work productively and positive discussions are ongoing to confirm an agreed assessment contingency approach for 2020-21, that takes into account the different operating environment in which colleges and other centres are currently working, and maintains the integrity of certification.

The HNVQ 2021 Group will be set up shortly to agree an assessment approach in early 2021. The group will include representation from key HNVQ stakeholders, and be chaired by Fiona Robertson, SQA Chief Executive.
