Commenting on initial details of the plans for national qualifications in Scotland in 2022, Dr Patrick Roach, General Secretary of the NASUWT-The Teachers’ Union, said:

“The NASUWT has been calling for teachers and pupils to be provided with further information about the plans for awarding qualifications in 2022 as a matter of urgency and it is welcome that some details are now emerging.

“We have made it clear to ministers and regulators that mitigations and contingency plans for 2022 will still be needed and having a range of options, as outlined by the Cabinet Secretary today, in place depending on the level of disruption over the next year is a sensible step.

“We now need to see further detail of how these plans are expected to work in practice.

“Whatever arrangements are adopted for qualifications in 2022 they must ensure fairness for students, reflect the level of disruption they have experienced to their education and also ensure the unacceptable and avoidable workload pressures teachers experienced in the last academic year are not repeated.”
