Abstract

Statement of Position, an initiative of the Scottish Consultative on the Curriculum (Scottish CCC, 1996), provides the rationale for all curriculum development in technology education in Scotland. It has influenced the Higher Still1 qualifications entitled Craft and Design, Technological Studies, Graphic Communication, Home Economics, and Art and Design for the Scottish Qualification Authority (1999). The National Guidelines for 5-142 Environmental Studies, Technology (2000) has technological capability (see Table1) as its attainment outcome.
