I met with Jane Richardson of Oracle this morning to discuss next week's seminars about the Oracle Academy programme. Jane has arranged two events next week - one in Edinburgh (Monday) and one in Glasgow (Wednesday) to update people about the programme.
Six Scottish schools and colleges have signed up and several lucky teachers and lecturers have just finished a 10 week training programme (two weeks of which were spent in UCLA) to help them deliver the course.
I'm speaking at the events about two topics - (1) SQA's general support for curricular links with IT vendors and (2) the specific credit transfer arrangements between the Oracle curriculum and various SQA courses (such as Higher Computing and HNC Computing).
I'll post something on this blog after the events. Contact Jane if you want more information on the Oracle Academy.
