NQ 2023 awarding evaluation

We’ve published the findings of in-depth research into the performance of the awarding of National Qualifications in the 2022–23 session.

This research provides the education community in Scotland with invaluable insights into the experiences of almost 5,000 learners, teachers, lecturers and senior examiners as they reflected on their use of National Courses.

For those of you who contributed to the evaluation, we give our sincere thanks to you for giving your time to share your experiences. It was particularly encouraging to see the 67% increase in the number of learners and 20% increase in the number of practitioners who engaged with us compared to last year.

We’ve also produced a summary of the findings for learners and ask that you share this with your own learners.
