Physical Education: National 5 portfolios and Advanced Higher projects

National 5 Physical Education portfolios

For the submission of National 5 Physical Education portfolios, learners must use the standard template provided by SQA. This is available from the National 5 Physical Education page of our website (under ‘Coursework’), where you will also find guidance on how to use this template. For example, you must not staple learners’ final submissions.

Please remind learners that they must include a copy of the data they have gathered with their portfolio (up to a maximum of four A4 pages may be submitted). Learners must ensure they add their SCN to each page of the data submitted. 

Also, please remind learners not to include a copy of their personal development programmes when submitting the portfolio to SQA. Instead, the relevant information from the personal development programme should be transferred into the table provided in the portfolio template. 

Advanced Higher Physical Education projects

Beginning with the current session, Higher Physical Education projects must now be submitted by learners using the standard template provided by SQA. This is available from the Advanced Higher Physical Education page of our website (under ‘Coursework’), where you will also find guidance on how to use this template. For example, you must not staple learners’ final submissions.
