Delay to new Higher exams
The SSTA welcomes the announcement of a delay to the roll out of the New Higher. Alan McKenzie, Acting General Secretary, stated “There is no doubt that our position on the requirement for delay is vindicated and it would be reassuring to know that when our members report difficulties in the implementation of curricular reform that they are taken seriously and not dismissed and ignored. There is now a window of opportunity to ensure that this critical part of CfE is fit for purpose. Let us ensure we use this window in a collegiate fashion without demonising those who have legitimate concerns"
