Independent Review of Qualifications and Assessment: have your say

Updated 19 March 2023: The Scottish Government is carrying out an Independent Review of Qualifications and Assessments, led by Professor Louise Hayward.

Independent Review of Qualifications and Assessments

Qualifications and Assessment review

The Qualifications and Assessment Review brings together ideas to modernise Scottish qualifications and assessments. This means that the new qualifications and assessments will be inclusive of all learners, while meeting the needs of employers, colleges and universities, and Scottish society.

Education – qualifications and assessment review: consultation

Phase One looked the vision and principles, and Phase Two explored options for a new approach to qualifications and assessment in Scotland.

In support of Phase Three a potential new model for qualifications and assessment in Scotland has been developed – the Scottish Diploma of Achievement.

Live online discussion 29 March

As part of the review process the National Parent Forum of Scotland (NPFS) and Connect are the gathering views of parents and carers.

Connect will be hosting a live online discussion for parents and carers with Professor Hayward on the new qualifications model.

  • Date: Wednesday 29 March 2023
  • Time: 7.30 – 9 pm
