School of Automation receives Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) accreditation
SOA is pleased to announce that it has become an accredited centre to deliver SQA qualifications as part of its apprenticeship model in Scotland. SOA’s Robotic Process Automation apprentices are supported by an SQA qualification while on their journey to becoming experienced developers. We are delighted to have been granted accreditation by SQA and look forward to working closely with the awarding body.
What is SQA accreditation?
The Scottish Qualifications Authority provides a wide range of high-quality, internationally-recognised qualifications and associated services. Based in Scotland, but working across the UK and internationally, the SQA works with training organisations like SOA, as well as schools, colleges and universities to develop and deliver qualifications and assessments which accurately reflect learners’ knowledge and skills and provide routes to jobs or further study.
SQA Accreditation quality assures the qualifications offered in Scotland and recognised internationally by approving and regulating awarding bodies and accrediting their qualifications against published regulatory requirements. Once as awarding body has received accreditation, the SQA works closely with training providers and offers support, advice and guidance to enable awarding bodies to comply with its regulatory requirements and promote effective regulation and continuous improvement.
Speaking about the accreditation Marc Cooper, CEO of SoA said:
“Our ability to deliver the SQA qualifications and industry certification gives our learners further confidence that their training will be recognised globally and will open the doors to exciting opportunities in the world of process automation. We are proud to be able to add this to our portfolio and it is a testament to the quality and standard of learning that we provide.”
