English pre-recorded webinars

To further support teachers and lecturers this session, we are creating pre-recorded webinars for National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher English to provide additional advice and guidance on marking the 2021 SQA-devised assessments and the Advanced Higher English dissertation.

National 5 English

There will be two separate pre-recorded webinars: one on the National 5 English Reading for Understanding, Analysis and Evaluation assessment, and one on the National 5 English Critical Reading (Scottish text) assessment.

Higher English

There will be two separate pre-recorded webinars: one on the Higher English Reading for Understanding, Analysis and Evaluation assessment, and one on the Higher English Critical Reading (Scottish text) assessment.

We have also supplemented our existing Understanding Standards resources for Higher English and published additional portfolio examples, which you can access from the Understanding Standards website.

Advanced Higher English

The pre-recorded webinar for Advanced Higher English will provide additional advice and guidance on marking the Advanced Higher dissertation.

We have also supplemented our existing Understanding Standards resources for Advanced Higher English and we have recently published additional portfolio examples. You can access them from the Understanding Standards website.

The pre-recorded webinars for National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher English will be published on the Understanding Standards website by the end of April. We will provide further updates in SQA news when they are available.
