The Deputy First Minister, John Swinney, has updated advice on support for Senior Phase students in relation to completion of course work. He states that, on the basis of public health advice he has decided that, with immediate effect, no young person with course work to complete should attend school or other education setting to do so. Where course work can be completed remotely, and safely following public health advice, then he is requesting that schools make arrangements to do so.
The SQA Chief Examiner will be setting out how the SQA will now aim to certificate young people’s qualifications and achievements as soon as possible.
We shall keep you fully up to date with all developments as they unfold.
