progress to date
Progress to date
  • PDA ITESOL validated and running in a number of centres
  • Pilot study undertaken into feasibility of PDA in TESOL at SCQF Level 9
  • In principle agreement to fund SQA to commence development work on the PDA in TESOL at SCQF level 9 this year and next. 
  • Agreement in principle that SQA should scope out a 'train the trainers' course (credit rated by SQA but not constituting a national award) for staff who would deliver the PDA, thus helping to promote quick early take up.
