NPAs in Administration - review

The review of the National Progression Awards (NPAs) in Administration at SCQF levels 4 and 5 is now underway. The focus of the next Qualifications Development Team (QDT) meeting, due to take place online in early November, will be to consider what revisions are required to the units that were identified as requiring updating at the initial meeting.

We would also be interested to hear from teachers and lecturers who would like to be involved in reviewing the updated units, or writing or reviewing Assessment Support Packs for the following units:
• Audio: An Introduction (SCQF level 4)
• Word Processing: Medical (SCQF level 5)
• Audio: Medical (SCQF level 5)
• Medical Administration (SCQF level 4)
• Prepare Business Documents (SCQF level 4)

If you are interested in being involved in any of the activity outlined above, please contact We recommend putting ‘NPAs in Administration’ in the subject of the email to ensure it is directed to the relevant team.
