Our North Lanarkshire Representative Barrie Sheppard, is part of Scottish Government’s Working Group on Assessment and Qualifications.  This group  has met fully on five occasions since February with an initial focus on seeking to reduce assessment-related workload for teachers and learners in advance of session 2016-17.

The first report on the work of the Assessment and Qualifications Group has now been published and can be viewed here. The report sets out a range of actions to reduce teacher workloads in implementing the new qualifications in the 2016/17 session and beyond.

Our Vice Chair Cheryl Burnett is involved with the review of the National Care Standards  and we are delighted to share this easy to read pocket guide with you, explaining the new National Care Standards and the work of the review group.
