MHW update

Hi everyone,

Apologies for the lack of activity on here over the past few months – things have been a bit hectic.

I just wanted to provide an update on a few things to keep you all in the loop.

MHW Level 6 Award – we are progressing well with this development but can’t quite believe how quickly the time has passed this year – i’m sure it’s been the same for you all. The award will be available for delivery from session 22-23 but unfortunately we cannot provide a timescale for exactly when materials will be available. We are working hard to make sure the units are available ASAP.

SOLAR – Apologies for the hold up with the availability of the other 2 level 4 SOLAR assessments. There have been some changes in the team that manage this work so unfortunately this led to a delay. They should be available online very soon.

Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions. I’m hoping to increase activity again on here over the coming weeks and will look to put together the podcast with Martyn soon.

Hi Callum

Is there any updates regarding the level 6 award as we are really keen to run this as the response to level 4 and 5 has been amazing.

Thanks in advance for any updates


Hey Marion – the level 6 Units are written and vetted. They just need to be formally validated following our processes and policies. I would hope that these can be made available before the end of the year to allow teachers/lecturers the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the content and decide if they wish to offer. The Award will be available for implementation in Session 2023/24. As this level will have a much greater focus on the application of theory, this will have approval conditions and won’t be on SQA’s auto-approved list. More info to follow soon – hope you’re well :o)
