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.

The list of approved SQA Advanced Qualifications adaptations for International centres is now on SQA Secure. Please contact your centre coordinator for access.
