DETAIL OF THE EVENT
The work of the Secondary Schools Examination Council which was taken over by the Schools Council for Curriculum and Examinations in 1964, following the recommendations of the Lockwood Committee (ED 147/812-16).

ED 147/833-907, ED 147/1344-1349 and in EJ 1-3, EJ 5, EJ 9, EJ 11-13
In 1982 the functions were separated again with the creation of:
the Secondary Examination Council – papers in EJ 8 and EJ 10
the School Curriculum Development Committee – papers in EJ 4, EJ 6-7
In 1988 these two bodies were replaced by:
the Secondary Examination Council was replaced by the Schools Examination and Assessment Council (papers in KC 1-2)
the School Curriculum Development Committee was replaced by the National Curriculum Council (records in FW 1-4)
In 1993 examination and curriculum functions were combined under the Schools Curriculum and Assessment Authority (SCAA) (minutes and papers in EJ 15).
The SCAA was merged with the National Council for Vocational Qualifications (records in KY 1-2) in 1997 to form the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority.
