The HNC IT was successfully validated yesterday with the QDT (Qualifications Design Team) being led by George Johnston Reid Kerr College. It is planned that a letter will be send (by post) to centres after the Easter break with details about this award.
However, in the interim you can e-mail Angela Lees firstname.lastname@example.org to gain any information your centre may require at this stage. Our next steps (with the timelines) are -
1 Making the unit specifications available via the SQA website (end of April)
2 Tidying up the VPD (now Arrangements Document) (end of April)
3 Starting the production of assessment exemplars (delivery end of June)
4 Organising a central event to feedback to centres (end of May)
5 Sending a letter out to centres (beginning of May)
If anyone would like to be considered for supporting the development of these assessment exemplars then please e-mail Angela and record your interest.
Finally, I would like to record a big 'Thank You' to the QDT in all the work that they have undertaken to gain this successful validation.
