Education Scotland will be running series of webinars after the Easter break to support the SQA Alternative Certification Model. The sessions for NQ Sciences have been scheduled for the following dates:
- 5-6pm Wed 28th April – Biology/Human Biology
- 5-6pm Tuesday 4th May – Chemistry
- 5-6pm Wednesday 5th May – Physics
- 5-6pm Monday 10th May – Environmental Science.
The purpose of these sessions will be to support local and national curriculum networks to share practice and quality assurance approaches. Please save these dates in your calendar if you’d like at attend.
Please remember to visit our Education Scotland DigiLearnScot blog for a helpful online tutorial of how MS Teams and OneNote can be used to support virtual quality assurance: https://blogs.glowscotland.org.uk/glowblogs/digilearn/2021/02/19/digital-quality-assurance-of-national-qualifications/
We realise too that some schools are, at present, actively looking for other partner schools to work with in relation to quality assurance for the SQA Alternative Certification Model. In many cases, arrangements will already be in place at local authority or RIC level. However, for those that require it, Education Scotland is hosting an informal online session from 5-6pm on Wednesday 31 March to facilitate an early opportunity for networking and matching with partner schools. This will take place in our Secondary Sciences Working Group in Glow.
