NC Applied Sciences – Level 5 and Level 6

SQA will shortly be carrying out a scoping review to ascertain if the level 5 and level 6 NCs in Applied Sciences are still fit for purpose.

Given that a considerably amount of development work has recently taken place with regard to the Science HNC/Ds, it is an ideal opportunity to gather information to determine whether the specific aims of the level 5 and level 6 NCs in Applied Sciences are meeting current needs.

Doug Fraser from North East Scotland College will be carrying out the scoping review, and Doug will be in contact with a wide range of stakeholders over the coming weeks to ascertain their views. Stakeholders will include: delivering centres, non-delivering centres, learners, employers, HEI and professional bodies.

Please contact Kirsty for further information on the scoping review or alternatively to pass on your contact details should you wish to be involved – kirsty.mitchell@sqa.org.uk

Further information will be published on the blog as the scoping review progresses.
