Design - Glasgow pupils update SCQF

17th December 2010 at 00:00

Three sixth-year pupils from Glasgow's Holyrood Secondary have swept the board in a competition to redesign one of the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework Partnership's most important documents.

The school filled the first three places on the judges' list: winner - Christopher Gordon; runner-up - Jonathan Russell; and highly-commended - Aimee Brannan. An entry from Larbert High near Falkirk was commended.

They were among more than 40 pupils who gave a fresh look to "Achievement Counts", a leaflet which explains the benefits of the SCQF and is aimed at young people across Scotland.

Julie Cavanagh, from the SCQF Partnership, said: "Our current leaflet is a bit too formal and business-like, so we were keen to update it and make it more appealing to young people, who are, after all, its main audience."

More than 250,000 copies of the new leaflet are to be produced, with distribution to start in February.

The three winners will be involved at every stage, including visits to design studio The Kemsley Agency and printers Montgomery Litho Group, both of which sponsored the competition, as did the Scottish Qualifications Authority.
