HN Computing update letter

I sent an update letter to centres today (it will be dispatched to centres on 6 January). The letter includes details about assessment exemplars, an update on the HND review and the final version of the credit transfer table.

Most of the SQA team are about to stop for their Christmas holidays (SQA stops on Thursday but some staff are taking annual leave or TOIL before then). We return on 5 January.

Have a good holiday.

My name is Caroline Douglas and I would like to take this opportunity to both introduce myself and also inform you that I will be taking over the role of Qualifications Officer within SQA for the area of Computing and IT from 5th January 2005.

I look forward to working with you in the New Year.

HND Computing review

I've updated the HND Computing blog today to include information on credit transfer.

The blog is an experiment. Blogs seem well suited to curriculum development since they provide a chronological sequence of events - but the number of hits on this site has been disappointing so far.

Time will tell if it's worthwhile to spend time on similar blogs in future.
