Statistics across the Curriculum Event
SQA are hosting a launch event for the new Statistics Unit at SCQF level 6, which is being introduced in session 2015-16 as part of Curriculum for Excellence.
The event will take place at the University of Strathclyde on 4 June 2015.
The Statistics Unit focuses on statistical interpretation and therefore contains minimal mathematical content. Potential assessors may come from a variety of backgrounds, including social sciences, business and life sciences.
The event will provide guidance on delivery and assessment and will give delegates the opportunity to participate in interactive workshops and discussions. It is targeted at principal teachers, faculty heads, and course/subject leaders, whose centres intend to deliver the new Statistics Unit in August 2015.
Places are limited to one per centre and so early booking is advisable. Local authority professional support staff will also be offered one place each.
