A common concern over recent months has been the lack of easily accessible, clearly defined guidelines for Aberdeenshire Council's proposed implementation of CfE in secondary schools.

Aberdeenshire Council have addressed this and issued these expanded guidelines.

The guidelines indicate that 'learners in S4 will typically study 6 courses leading to qualifications but this does not...preclude individual learners from studying more or less than six courses' and offer various example suggestions for flexible pathways for learners through the Senior Phase (S4-S6).
