SQA participates in the Disability Confident scheme. Under this scheme, all candidates who consider themselves to be disabled in terms of the Equality Act 2010, and who meet the essential minimum criteria for the post will be guaranteed an interview.

Note: In the Equality Act, a person has a disability if they have a physical or mental impairment and the impairment has a substantial and long-term adverse effect on their ability to perform normal day-to-day activities. Further guidance in relation to the meaning of disability is accessible on the Directgov’s website as follows: Disability and the Equality Act 2010.
