National Evaluation of the Recognising Achievement Collaborative Enquiry Projects

Cathy Howieson, Sheila Semple, Angela Jackson

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


For at least 30 years, initiatives in Scotland and the UK have sought to encourage and recognise learning beyond the outcomes of the formal curriculum. This is now being taken forward through Curriculum for Excellence. In 2008 the Scottish Government initiated pilot projects to investigate different approaches to recognising young people’s achievements beyond their formal qualifications, and commissioned a national evaluation of this work, conducted by the Centre for Educational Sociology. These Research Findings outline the main findings of the evaluation and the issues raised by the experiences of the pilot projects.
