Scotland - SQA & CfE
Scotland’s Curriculum of Excellence has given rise to new qualifications that started in 2013 with National 1-5 and in 2014 with Higher (new). In August 2015 the Advanced Higher (new) qualification will be implemented.
The curriculum phase of the Curriculum for Excellence Programme has now been implemented and will continue until 2016 when the implementation of the new qualifications, will be completed.
These new qualifications will help students demonstrate the knowledge, understanding and skills they have developed at school and to enable them to prepare for further learning, training and employment.
