The Scottish Youth Parliament is gathering the views of young people on the future of assessment for National 4 and National 5 qualifications through a new survey.
Education in Scotland is going through major changes, and we want young people’s views to be at the heart of those changes. This is your opportunity to have your say on what Scottish Education should look like. The results of the survey will be used to inform SYP’s campaigning on the future of assessments.
On launching the survey, Cameron Garrett, Convener of SYP’s Education and Lifelong Learning Committee, said:
“I want to see young people’s views and rights at the heart of our education system. As changes to assessments are considered, it’s so important that the people who will be most impacted by those changes are heard.
“To help our campaigning reflect the views of Scotland’s young people, it is crucial that we get an accurate reflection of their views. I would encourage all young people in Scotland to respond to this survey, share it with their friends and on social media, and have their voices heard.”
The survey is just four questions long and is for young people in Scotland aged 12-25 to complete. It will close at 8pm on Friday 8th October 2021. Completing this survey will earn you 150 Young Scot Rewards points!
Make sure you #HaveYourSay on the future of assessments and fill in the survey today, and share it with other young people!
