The Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) is responsible for the development, assessment and certification of the majority of non-degree qualifications in Scotland. Founded in 1993, the SQA is estimated to have awarded qualifications to more than 1.25million Scots, and the flexibility of its courses means such qualifications are highly prized by industry experts the world over.
SQA qualifications not only offer students a direct route into employment, but they are widely recognised by the vast majority of professional bodies. Because the SQA is accountable to the British government, it is bound by law to produce qualifications which are not only fit for purpose but renowned for their quality. The SQA and Edulink have worked closely together for a number of years, offering our students the chance to gain relevant qualifications and the practical experience they will need for success in their chosen career paths.
