NextGen: HN qualification grading - SQA Academy course

We recently launched an e-learning course on SQA Academy to introduce the prototype grading approach for Next Generation Higher National qualifications (NextGen: HN). NextGen: HNs use overall qualification grading rather than a single graded unit which is used in current HN qualifications, creating more time for learning and teaching.

The course provides information on whole qualification grading and grading narratives alongside the three prototype approaches to whole qualification grading.
