What is a Quality Assurance Officer
Getting in and Qualifications
There are a variety of options to enter the field, from practical entry level roles to higher education.
- Business Management
- Materials Science
Choosing a Foundation Apprenticeship in Business Skills as one of your S5 or S6 subjects can helpdevelop the skills a Quality Assurance Officer would require.
Entry requirements for courses can change. Always contact the college, university or training provider to check exactly what you will need.
Many people start in an entry-level role and take relevant work-based qualifications such as a Chartered Quality Institute Certificate in Quality Management.
Entry-level roles require qualifications at SCQF level 4/5, while more advanced roles require a Higher National Diploma or degree.
Alternative routes include a Graduate Apprenticeship in Business Management, gaining work experience while studying towards a degree qualification.
