We met with representatives from various colleges today to discuss HN Multimedia awards. The awards were launched in 2003, during a period when the HN design principles were being developed, and I had received lots of comments about such things are core skills and vendor compatibility.
I gave a short presentation [PPT] on the background to the meeting. The rest of the morning was spent discussing the changes that people wanted. We agreed some short-term actions (such as developing assessment exemplars and carrying out a core skill audit) and some longer term actions (such as reviewing the qualifications frameworks). We're hoping to complete the short term changes by August 2006 and the long term changes by August 2007.
