Qualification Support Team for NC/NPA awards

There are QSTs for advanced (HN/PDA) and non-advanced (NC/NPA) awards, each of which meets twice per year. There was a QST meeting this afternoon for the non-advanced awards.

The purpose of a QST is to support qualifications by suggesting how SQA (or other national agencies) can provide assistance to centres in the form of advice or support materials or other forms of assistance.

We gets lots of suggestions about how we can improve qualifications or support materials and every idea is considered by the QST. Most are approved. For example, we had a couple of comments about the complexity of one of the outcomes in PC Passport at SCQF Level 6 and we agreed to review this with a view to simplifying it.

We're happy to consider any request. But we do ask that each request is provided in a specific format to ensure that we have all the information we need in order to make an informed decision. So, if you have any ideas about how we can improve qualifications or provide additional support, please complete this form.

Contact Hilary for more information about the QST for NC/NPAs and contact Caroline for the QST for HN/PDAs.
