The SVQ launch event was held at the Glasgow Science Centre today. Almost 100 people attended the events (one was held in the morning and one in the afternoon).
Chris Morrow of E-Skills explained the differences between the new awards and the old, and emphasised the flexibility of the new qualifications. Dougie Somner of Scottish Enterprise expressed his support for this initiative.
I described SQA's support to SVQ centres and urged everyone to subscribe to the SVQ online community.
All of the the presentations are available from Tamsin Rae (Powerpoint format).
