Now that the HNC Computing award has been validated, the development team can turn their attention to the HND.
After this morning's launch event, the team met to discuss how to take this forward. Much of the HND development work has already been done but the team have to finalise things during the next few months. The target is to validate the award in December so that it's available to centres from early next year.
In addition to the traditional means of communicating with centres (I'll be writing to centres in the near future to inform you about a forthcoming seminar), there's also an online forum that you can join to keep up-to-date with developments and I also plan to create a dedicated blog for this development that (hopefully) the entire development team will contribute to. Don't worry, it's a short term blog that will be deleted as soon as the award is validated but it seems a good idea to try to use a blog for this purpose. So please visit the blog regularly to find out how the HND is developing.
