Appointee Management Professional Recognition
Professional Recognition and Registration and CPD with SQA
This could be achieved in the following ways:
- Framework for Professional Recognition. For this you will need to demonstrate how the knowledge and expertise gained in the Appointee role has impacted on your own professional development and how pupils and colleagues gain from it.
- If you are considering the Chartered Teacher Programme it may be that the experience and evidence you have of professional learning and development as an SQA Appointee could be part of an APEL claim with a Provider.
SQA would encourage you as an appointee to visit the GTCS website for more details on how you can convert your skills and knowledge with us to receive professional recognition.
Statistics prove that a high number of claims for professional recognition are supported by evidence of being an SQA Appointee.
The online resource SQA Academy aims to extend and enhance the training and development opportunities available to all those that contribute to the assessment processes that underpin our qualifications. Agreement has been reached with GTCS that those SQA Appointees being trained using SQA Academy courses can submit claims through the Professional Recognition/Registration Framework. If you have difficulty accessing the site you can contact the SQA Academy team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Another source of useful information is the Understanding Standards website which has been created to allow teaching professionals the opportunity to understand more fully the standards of assessment as they are applied by the SQA examination teams. Visitors to the site will have the opportunity to consider the principles which underlie the marking of their subjects and then apply this understanding by marking a number of candidate responses and comparing their marks with those given. The Understanding Standards website is mostly unrestricted to access, however there are a few areas which require a login. Login and password details can be obtained from your centre's SQA coordinator, or by contacting the Understanding Standards website team at email@example.com.
