Angela and I visited Stow College this morning to discuss computer games. Stow recently developed an HNC Computer Games Development which they are offering this year for the first time. I was there to discuss how SQA could support the new award. We agreed to develop a number of assessment exemplars.
We also discussed the possibility of devising one or two National Units in this area - specifically units (probably called Computer Games) at Intermediate 1 (SCQF 4) and Intermediate 2 (SCQF 5). These new units would be part of the on-going modernisation of National Certificate provision.
You can get more information about the HNC award from Angela Lees.
