In 2014, Newbattle Abbey College was asked by the Scottish Credit and Qualification Framework Partnership and Education Scotland to develop Adult Achievement Awards, based on the model of Youth Achievement Awards. The awards were credit-rated by Edinburgh Napier University. In consultation with a national steering group, Newbattle established 10 pilots from September 2015 to February 2016. Education Scotland has published an evaluation of the pilot programme. Video clips with some views from adult learners and tutors who participated are also available.
