I already have a several page list of my concerns over cfe but sure I've missed some points.....what would you put? At a recent meeting with the Cabinet Secretary, Michael Russell, we raised the issue of preparation for CfE and for the new N4&5 exams. Mr Russell assures us that support is available, both in the form of preparation and development time and SQA prepared courses. Correspondence from members suggests that this support is not being offered to teachers who find there is no cover to allow time for development work and no places available on the small number of courses offered. Mr Russell has asked that we provide examples of this problem. We can anonymise responses but will have to provide names of schools and authorities where the problems exist. This is our opportunity to provide evidence for what we all know is fact; we are not ready, promised support is not being provided, courses places are oversubscribed by 200%, and teachers are not being given time to develop new courses. In addition evidence is emerging of growing concern among members of Qualification Design Teams but, as yet, there is no clear picture of how widespread this is. We would welcome information about: Courses oversubscribed (providing course name) Requests for development time not being granted (no of days and reason not granted) Problems evident at QDT or other groups you attend .
