Learning and Teaching

Can I arrange a placement for my students? *NEW*

As we are operating under a continuing regime of strict national lockdown measures and currently not willing to reopen our campuses for face to face teaching in support of the Government’s public health advice to stay at home wherever possible, it is not appropriate for placements to go ahead at this time. On the basis of the information currently available it is unlikely students placements will resume before 1 March 2021 at the earliest. 

What is happening with Graded Units?

SQA are removing the need to complete the assessment of Graded Units (exam-based and project-based) in most HNC and HND Group Awards for the current academic session 2020-21.

Grading will be determined by teaching staff directly involved in delivery and assessment using evidence generated during completion of the other units in an award. Some Graded Units will still be delivered where teaching teams feel they add significant value and help progression opportunities. Course Teams will be asked to use evidence generated from other mandatory or contributing units to apply a final grade for learners.
