Useful Links/Information


Over the summer holidays we would like you to research courses / jobs, where to study / work, level of study / job.  Click here for more information.


Scottish Government along with SQA, SDS, Education Scotland, and SCQF, have been working with employers, employer networks and business organisations (such as FSB, CBI and Scottish Chambers of Commerce) to ensure employer understanding of Curriculum for Excellence and the National Qualifications.

On a number of occasions feedback has been received that employers would like to have information on qualifications ready to hand when it comes time for them to recruit. As a result it was agreed that it might be helpful to provide web links to explanatory materials for employers, which young people could include in their CVs or Job Applications. 

For information on the National Qualifications, and how they compare with each other and over time, please follow these web links to a summary table from SCQF or a short leaflet for employers from SQA
