April 21 update

Card Production

Card production recommenced at the end of March, and we are currently working through the backlog of cards and applications. As we are still operating within government restrictions, can we ask you to remain patient until we are able to clear the applications that have accumulated when our offices were closed? Applications submitted by post or online will be processed in date order.

Paper Applications

In response to the recent restrictions affecting the submission and collection of paper applications we will no longer be accepting, or processing applications submitted through the post after Friday 30th April 2021.

From Monday 3rd May Centres and Candidates must use the digital applications accessible from our website (www.swqr.org.uk), guidance for the completion of these applications is available on the appropriate web pages, and our team are available to discuss any difficulties you may encounter.

Please note, for Centres, as you are completing multiple applications, using Google Chrome will provide the best user experience in terms of auto filling fields etc.
