The Computing & Call Handling group has representation from E-Skills UK, Microsoft, CompTIA, Cisco, Oracle as well as representatives from Scottish colleges and training providers, and the Scottish Executive. So it's shaping-up to be a good Panel.
The first meeting will take place on Tuesday, 22 March.

The SVQ launch event takes place next week and I met with a couple of the speakers to discuss arrangements. Jack Robertson (left, front) will talk about the IT User awards and Jack Coleman (left, rear) will speak on IT Practitioner/Professional awards.
Caroline Douglas (right, front) is over-seeing the organisation of the event and Tamsin Rae (right, rear) is the official SQA coffee-pourer (Tasmin is actually providing admin support for the event).
You can still register for the morning or the afternoon event or contact Tamsin if you want to find out more about it.

The first Awarding Body Forum of the year was held today, at the BCS headquarters in central London.
These meetings are organised by E-Skills and most awarding bodies attend. They provides opportunities for E-Skills to update the ABs on what's happening with National Occupational Standards and also give the ABs an opportunity to raise issues with E-Skills.
All of the ABs are in the throes of launching the new S/NVQs in Information Technology and this raised lots of issues.
