Castlebay Community School head teacher Annie MacLean, was named SQA Champion after tirelessly working to ensure her pupils were aligned correctly to appropriate SQA qualifications. This is all the more impressive as before taking up her post at Castlebay, Annie was a deputy head teacher at a primary school with little experience of SQA. Since taking on the role, Annie has worked closely with SQA and partners, including the local college, presenting students for subjects including mental health and psychology.

Highly Commended in the same category was Cherry Hopton from Dundee Angus College, who is a champion of diverse assessment in social science and Barry McBride who has progressed from chemistry teacher to head of faculty responsible for Chemistry and Physics at Bellshill Academy.
