HNVQ approved adaptations for session 2021-22

The Adaptation Request process was introduced in session 2020-21 in order to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 in centres.

To continue to mitigate the impact of the pandemic on centres and learners, centres can continue to submit requests for adaptations to conditions of assessment to help them align with subject-specific guidance issued by SQA or any regulatory guidelines.

These requests can be submitted for: Higher National Certificates and Diplomas, SQA Advanced Certificates and Diplomas, Professional Development Awards, National Progression Awards, National Certificates, Skills for Work, Awards and internally-assessed NQ Units. The majority of approved HNVQ adaptations for session 2020-21 will remain valid for session 2021-22.

The list of approved HNVQ adaptations for session 2021-22 is now on SQA Secure. Please ask your centre coordinator to access the files.
