UCAS embargo training

(19 July 2019)

Every year we receive results early for a number of qualifications. To ensure we continue to receive these early, we must adhere to the UCAS embargo. You don’t need to be directly involved in admissions to be at risk of breaching the embargo; it applies to anyone who may come into contact with any of our applicants receiving results. The training covers scenarios we might encounter, including some you may not have thought would cause problems. The training is available here

The SQA and JCQ results embargo periods are:

•SQA – 6pm on Monday 29 July until 9am on Tuesday 6 August 2019

•JCQ – 2pm on Friday 9 August until 6am on Thursday 15 August 2019

We currently have the highest number of staff who have completed the UCAS Results 2019 Embargo Training in the north region. We are also in the top 10 in the UK to have done so.
