Quarterly and Annual Statistics Reports

We publish a report each quarter on the performance of all of our accredited qualifications. The report is broken down by qualification type, awarding body, qualification developer and qualification category.  This report is collated and analysed annually.

Our approved awarding bodies are required to provide us with information relating to their accredited qualifications every quarter which we use to inform our statistics reports.

You can download the Quarterly and Annual Statistics Reports along with the accompanying raw data files below.

SQA Accreditation also produce an Annual Review, this is a document which gives insight into the past year and plans for the following year for SQA Accreditation. The report summarises the activity from the Accreditation, Regulation, and Information and Research sections. It is designed to give context for stakeholders who are interested about how SQA Accreditations operates. We are always looking for feedback about our reports. We can be contacted at our manned email info.accreditation@sqa.org.uk.
