Dualling the A9 – An Introduction for Education Practitioners  

(1 SCQF credit point)

Academy9 has developed a unit for education practitioners, credit-rated at SCQF Level 6 (comparable to the demands of an SQA Higher) by Inverness College UHI. It involves at least 10 hours of learning, which is done online using the Academy9 website to research information and answer set questions to meet the learning outcomes and there are 4 outcomes in total. Successful completion results in a certificate from Inverness College UHI and award of 1 SCQF credit point.

The content of the unit is specific to the A9. It focuses on key features of the A9 upgrading project, including

  • its objectives and benefits
  • the job roles of industry professionals involved, and
  • an example of mitigating  a project challenge

The unit has been incorporated into the continuing professional development (CPD) programme for teachers by some Scottish local authorities.
