Curriculum and Assessment Board


The Curriculum and Assessment Board has been established to improve curriculum and assessment policy in education.

The Board will be a forum for frank and open discussion about what is working in the curriculum and where improvement is required.

It will provide advice and guidance to Scottish Ministers.

The Board will meet every three months.

The Curriculum and Assessment Board has replaced the Curriculum for Excellence Management Board and its supporting structures: the Curriculum for Excellence Implementation Group and Assessment and National Qualifications Group.
