NQ CPD support requests

We deliver a programme of Understanding Standards activities to help teachers and lecturers develop their understanding of the national standards required for assessment in National Qualifications.

If areas of concern are identified and are not addressed in the Understanding Standards programme we will provided Continuing Professional Development (CPD) training, when requested. CPD support is subject-specific and can be tailored to cover one or more qualification levels.

Requesting CPD

CPD requests should be made by the appropriate representative in your local authority, independent school or college. We will consider all requests, subject to the nature of the request and availability of resources.

CPD Delivery

If a requirement for CPD is identified we will contact the representative to agree the content and the most appropriate way for the support to be delivered, eg:

  • Teleconference
  • video
  • conference or event
  • webinar

CPD support will be provided by an experienced SQA staff member, who will provide advice and guidance on the areas of concern identified.

Please note: CPD can be delivered all year, however the availability of SQA staff will be limited during May/June due to their involvement in main diet procedures.
