2021 assessment task briefs for Fashion and Textile Technology, and Health and Food Technology

We are releasing the assessment task briefs for Fashion and Textile Technology and Health and Food Technology slightly later than usual this year. Normally, we publish the National 5 and Higher assignment and practical activity assessment task briefs by the end of September. However, the 2021 assessment task briefs correspond with the modifications we are making to the course assessments for session 202021, following the consultation on proposed modifications to National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher assessment.

As we advised in our most recent update on National Courses in session 202021, the Deputy First Minister has asked SQA to pause publishing the outcomes of the consultation until after the Priestley Review has been published. We will release the 2021 assessment task briefs as soon as possible following the publication of the consultation outcomes.
