Certification

The planning tools on this page were devised for in-service workshops soon after Access levels had been introduced. Judging by the number of times they were downloaded from the previous site, visitors seem to have found them helpful, so they remain available, below. Teachers presenting learners for Access levels in Scotland are encouraged to review and amend the help sheets to make sure that they still meet their needs and that they comply with the requirements of the Scottish Qualifications Authority. (See links on the Certification page.)
