N4/5 Administration & IT
Our National 5 course delivers the Administration and IT Curriculum as outlined in the SQA documents.
We use teacher-led discussion, cooperative group work and many formative assessment strategies to give pupils the opportunity to demonstrate and improve their knowledge, practical skills and skills for learning, life and work.
Pupils are formally assessed using SQA assessment resources. At National 5 level there are three assessments which are completed internally. These assessments are 8 hours each! There is a final course assessment which comprises of an externally assessed assignment provided by the SQA. This is done in class time and sent to SQA for marking. This gives the learners an opportunity to demonstrate the key skills that they have gained and consolidated over the year.
Recording & Reporting
The SQA assessments and homework results form the basis for the comments in parental reports. These results are also used to inform decisions about level presentation. There is no formal exam for this course.
Resources will appear here soon.
