A log of all diarised contact between SQA’s Executive Management Team, Board and Heads of Service and the Education Secretary, John Swinney, his officials and special advisers is provided in the attached file.  Note there are 4 tabs to break down attendance at the key meetings, of which SQA and John Swinney or his officials, are represented.  These are the Further and Higher Education Covid-19 Ministerial Leadership Group (MLG), Covid-19 Education Recovery Group (CERG) and Qualifications Contingency Group (QCG).

In addition to the dates provided, colleagues from the Scottish Government’s Learning Directorate, Advanced Learning and Science Directorate, and SQA met virtually on a regular basis, throughout the Covid-19 Pandemic.
