Robert Virtue, Principal Teacher of Craft, Design and Technology at Musselburgh Grammar School, speaks up for Scottish education when he describes some of the work completed by 14 year olds at the school.  He shows us an example of integrated project work where rather than following one unit of study with another the department integrate a variety of elements into a cohesive whole.  The outcome – which builds upon work done in the two previous years – is outstanding and goes to demonstrate how Curriculum for Excellence can really lead to incredibly high standards of work. We shouldn’t settle for anything less!
