Advice to Users
Users should check that documents conform with current SQA Arrangements.
Each of the six issues has links with the physical and human environment units. Careful consideration should be given to the two issues. For example, if you work in or around a potential case study for the tourism issue, then it may make sense to choose that issue. Some practitioners will have particular issues where they may have experience and this should, and could, encourage choice.
This advice and guidance has been produced to support the profession with the delivery of courses which are either new or which have aspects of significant change within the new national qualifications (NQ) framework.
The advice and guidance provides suggestions on approaches to learning and teaching. Practitioners are encouraged to draw on the materials for their own part of their continuing professional development in introducing new national qualifications in ways that match the needs of learners.
Practitioners should also refer to the course and unit specifications and support notes issued by the Scottish Qualifications Authority.
