SQA update on arrangements for quality assurance and the certification of National Courses and Awards

QA has provided an update in three key areas.

Firstly, what evidence-based judgements they need teachers and lecturers to make about their learners’ grades to help inform certification at National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher.

Secondly, the marking of National 5 coursework. Finally, details on their approach to the certification of National 2, National 3 and National 4 courses, National Certificates, National Progression Awards, Skills for Work courses, Awards, and free-standing units at SCQF levels 5, 6 and 7.

We hope this update is helpful to you. Thank you for your support and your patience during this exceptionally difficult time. We fully appreciate that this is an uncertain time for learners who have worked hard throughout the year and will now, with their families, be worried about what this means for them.

By working together, we can ensure that your hard work is rightly and fairly recognised through our qualifications system.
