Scotland's qualifications are changing as part of Curriculum for Excellence. Some new qualifications are being introduced while others are being revised.
Parents in each school can set up their Parent Council in a way that best suits them, but all Parent Councils have a role to play in supporting pupils, parents and the school.
Find out how Curriculum for Excellence is making a difference to every child and read our new fact files.
This leaflet has been produced to help parents better understand how their children will benefit from changes under Curriculum for Excellence as the new qualifications are introduced.
