About the SQA-

The Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) is Scotland?s national body for qualifications up to and beyond the degree level and the SQA is accountable to the Scottish Government. The SQA provides internationally recognised qualifications that allow students international mobility and pathways into universities, college or work and offers qualifications developed in partnership with colleges and universities. Furthermore, the SQA provides a wide range of high quality, internationally recognised qualifications and associated services.

The Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF) is a tool that is used to compare and cross-reference Scottish Qualifications against the European Qualifications Framework to decide entrance requirements to Universities of the European Union and colleges. Furthermore, the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF) ensures that qualifications meet Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) standards and that they are equally accessible, flexible, relevant and of high quality. The Java Institute for Advanced Technology, in collaboration with the SQA, has SCQF credit rated the PCJT Software Engineer Qualification as an SQA customised award and this gives these students the same recognition, international mobility and pathways to universities or careers in Software Engineering.
