I really enjoyed the conference and the trip to edinburgh last year l.jpg

‘I really enjoyed the conference and the trip to Edinburgh last year.’

‘So did I but I don’t need to do anything about Curriculum for Excellence as it’s not in the Units I deliver’


Learning through curriculum for excellence l.jpg

Learning through Curriculum for Excellence

In early education and childcare courses students can learn through the capacities of CfE.

‘Skills for Work’ was the first course developed under these principles. Not just for the under 18s but for all ages.

A message from a successful learner:

‘ I started off in ‘an intro to childcare’ course and now I am going to university. I learned how to study and to believe in myself’’ (Charlotte aged 42, ‘2nd chance to learn’)

Learning about Curriculum for Excellence

  • Curriculum for Excellence is mandatory content across all early education and childcare courses.

  • It features in ‘curriculum based units’ but may not be identified directly in the mandatory elements of a Unit specification but may come under a general term e.g. ‘current’.

Remember the some parts of a Unit Specification are mandatory others are for guidance only.

CfE Embedded in HNC: Early Education and Childcare

Scotland's Colleges website provides key links to information, resources and professional development opportunities for staff involved in implementing and embedding the principles, experiences and outcomes of Curriculum for Excellence to meet the four capacities through the delivery of the HNC: Early Education and Childcare.

The interact web pages direct staff through the capacities to individual units of the HNC and into appropriate material. This can be used to support learning on the HNC but also used to underpin SVQs and other Awards.

And Finally !!!!!!!!

Assessments

Centre devised assessments should be altered to reflect CfE, the instrument of assessment and the marking guidance should reflect ‘current practice’. Internal verification should be used to ensure the robustness of assessments and material can be sent to SQA for prior moderation.

NABs and ASPs should be reviewed regularly and the marking guidance amended through internal verification.

Marking is at the ‘discretion of the marker’.
