The Qualification Design Team (QDT) responsible for the review of NC Computing met for the first time this afternoon.
The QDT has a wide ranging remit and will play an important role in shaping the new award(s). Members have been selected from a number of Scottish FE colleges (such as Telford College and Cumbernauld College) and include classroom practitioners with experience of delivering NC awards.
It was a good meeting with interesting debates about the role of core skills, vocational skills and assessment within NC programmes. I was particularly pleased that everyone agreed to try to be as innovative as possible when creating the new qualifications.
