Education Scotland has published further titles in its series of Professional Focus Papers. These materials have been designed to assist those supporting learners as they work towards the new qualifications.
The papers highlight important features of learning which are enhanced or different from previous arrangements. They provide advice on approaches to learning and teaching which build directly on those used in the 3-15 Broad General Education in order to promote continuity in learners’ acquisition of knowledge, understanding and skills. The papers are also intended to stimulate professional reflection and dialogue about learning.
This set of materials covers a variety of subjects at National 4 and National 5: Lifeskills Mathematics, Mathematics, Care, Latin and Classical Studies.
Also available, at National 5 only: Dance, Psychology, Sociology and Economics.
They come as part of the development of exemplar course materials across the full range of National 4 and National 5 qualifications, being managed by Education Scotland in partnership with ADES.
The Professional Focus Papers are now available for download on the National Qualifications area of the Education Scotland website.
