I met with Rhona Arthur of SLIC this morning to discuss progress with the development of new qualifications for librarians.
Ted Hastings is leading a team of writers to develop two Professional Development Awards: Certificate in Applications of ICT in Libraries and Advanced Certificate in Applications of ICT in Libraries. The first award is SCQF level 7 and the second one is a mix of level 7 and level 8.
The qualifications are designed for practising librarians - either to certificate their existing skills or to form the basis of a training programme for new starts.
They are due to be validated on 31 May and available to centres in the autumn.
