Health and Safety considerations for SQA will need assessed. Liability insurance via Council.
Any costs to SQA/students ie travel/lunch costs.
Implications of Disclosure Scotland checks?
Is there a ‘contract’ agreement between Midlothian Council and SQA?
Confidentiality clause will apply. Any material breach will target Midlothian Council.
How can work placement be integrated into our apprenticeship scheme in the longer term? We need promotional aspects in schools to position SQA as a local employer, coupled with placements and the formal apprenticeship scheme.
Need to discuss options with the Heads of Service to see if they would support/participate in work placement programme.
