23 November 2021 – update: The Parent Council wants to hear from parents on the issues raised in the current Scottish Government education consultation on the replacement of the Scottish Qualifications Authority and the reform of Education Scotland.
The Scottish Government has made a significant proposal for reform, and the complex consultation requires knowledge of the roles of different educational bodies, and an understanding of Curriculum for Excellence.
A summary of the consultation is presented here
We recognise that not everyone will have time to deal with all the issues raised. Therefore to simplify this consultation, the Parent Council is asking for views on the single question below.
What would you like Scotland’s secondary education assessment system to look like in the future?
Please submit your comments here
All responses can be submitted anonymously, but you if you would like us to contact you about your response, please leave your name and email address.
We are asking for comments by midday on Wednesday 24 November 2021.
The Parent Council will collate parents’ comments and send them on to the consultation.
Respond directly to the Scottish Government consultation
We are disappointed that greater steps have not been taken to make the consultation more accessible to parents and will be making that point in the consultation response.
If you are able, please also submit your own individual response to the consultation.
Details can be found here along with further information on the background, including CfE, Education Scotland and the SQA, and links to the OECD reports.
