Higher Level Skills and Abilities

1Locate, extract, read and use appropriate literature drawn from multiple sources with a full and critical understanding.
2Design, plan, conduct and report investigations and research to solve problems and communicate results of their study accurately and reliably.
3Seek solutions to routine and unfamiliar problems through the analysis and synthesis of a range of concepts, knowledge and skills to formulate evidence-based arguments and evaluate and summarise information critically.
4Analyse and interpret data and present quantitative and qualitative information, together with analysis, argument and commentary, in a form appropriate to the intended audience; using appropriate quantitative techniques, relevant IT and software and media.
