Systems Verification

Systems verification is the process by which SQA ensures centres delivering Higher National qualifications are managing their systems and resources to meet our Quality Assurance Criteria.

There are specific Quality Assurance Criteria which relate to systems:

The criteria are grouped into five categories:

  1. Management of a Centre
  2. Resources
  3. Candidate Support
  4. Internal Assessment and Verification
  5. Data Management

If your centre has been approved as an SQA centre recently, you will have experience of providing documentary evidence against the quality criteria. For systems verification you will also need to provide evidence of the implementation of policies and procedures on an ongoing basis.

The SQA staff who are responsible for carrying out systems verification are our Quality Enhancement Managers (QEMs).

Full information on the process of Systems Verification and the requirements of the Quality Assurance Criteria is available in our Guide to Systems Verification for Centres 2015-18 (China)
