Scottish Case Study

The National Record of Achievement (NRA), launched in 1991, was judged effective with school pupils as a tool to help them summarise and articulate their achievements and aspirations. It also provided a structure around which to plan for the future. All young people were entitled to leave school with an NRA and most schools encouraged and provided guidance for its use. It had become increasingly apparent that the NRA could also be a useful tool to support individuals beyond school in personal, academic and vocational areas of their lives. Consultation following the Dearing Review of 16-19 qualifications in England and Wales recognised this, and it was recommended that the NRA should be reviewed, restructured and re-launched to support individuals throughout lifelong learning. It was to be given a new name - the Progress File.
