Spreadsheet Safe

Since February 2009 SQA has worked closely with Q-Validus, a Dublin based organisation who are leaders in creating and supporting global assessment and certification programmes.

At that time SQA signed a formal endorsement agreement with Q-Validus and this partnership has seen SQA's full endorsement of Q-Validus' suite of IT certification programmes that are designed to improve productivity in the workplace through more efficient and effective use of modern day office IT applications. The certification programmes focus on improving functional and collaborative skills between knowledge workers within today's technology-centric workplace. This programme is now being rolled out globally by our partners.

One of these innovative Units is Spreadsheet Safe.

Spreadsheet Safe is a recognised computer skills training and certification standard for those who work with important spreadsheets. Endorsed by SQA, now Spreadsheet Safe can become a valuable new programme addition for your training centre and your clients.

The Spreadsheet Safe qualification is mapped to the UK National Occupational Standards (NOS) ITQ 2009 and is endorsed by the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA). The programme is designated at Level 7 and with 7 Credits on the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF). Spreadsheet Safe is also approved CPD by ACCA.

With a published course book, e-learning, automated testing and a recognised certificate, Spreadsheet Safe complements existing spreadsheet training and offers a valued additional training perspective.
