SWQR November Bulletin

Further to our first bulletin issued, in June 2020, development of the new online Street Works Qualifications Register (SWQR) has been progressing well. We are now at the point in our development where our attention turns to functionality for centres.

To ensure we capture requirements and understand the needs of centres, we will be running a series of focus groups which will start towards the end of the year. Thanks to all centres who have already come forward to offer their support and have volunteered to take part in our focus groups. Your input will help to shape the design of our new system.

Prior to the focus groups, we are keen to gather general information from all centres that will help us understand what is important to you as an SWQR centre. As such, we hope you will agree to complete a short survey and provide us with your feedback by close of play on Friday 13 November 2020. Completion of the survey should take no longer than 10 mins. Please click on the following link to access the survey.

Your feedback is important to us as it will help inform the functionality developed for centres. It will also help us understand how we can make the SWQR application process easier for you and your colleagues. All responses will remain confidential and your feedback will only be used for the purposes of the SWQR online platform development.

How to find out more

To help keep you up to date on project developments, we will be setting up a specific section on our website where you will find information on:

  • future updates on progress
  • ways you can get more involved in the development
  • how to register and access the system when it goes live
  • changes to SWQR processes which may affect your current ways of working

We are always keen to hear your views and hope that you will continue to provide us with your feedback throughout this project.

For further information about the project or if you have any comments, please contact us at SWQR@sqa.org.uk and mark your email for the attention of Carole Brown, SWQR Contracts Manager.

We look forward to receiving your feedback and to speaking to those of you who will be taking part in our focus groups.

Thank you.
