College consortium to develop NC materials

I've just heard that a number of colleges have got together to form a consortium to develop teaching and learning material to support a number of units within the new NC programmes.

Please note that this is not an SQA project. The initiative is being led by Mike Jannetta of Glasgow Met. So contact Mike if you want more information.

  1. Oh great! SQA hyped, typed and held meetings regarding this brand new dig media cert. At the same time promised us learning and assessment material. Now its down to a college consortium. Will this matertial be available to all or only consortuim members?

  2. Ian - SQA will provide assessment material for all of the mandatory units (for both levels) plus some of the options. We are also developing teaching material for some of the units (such as the PC Passport units). I don't know the units that the consortium will development materials for.

    I'm sorry that these materials have not yet appeared but they will begin to arrive very soon (next week).

    I'll create a summary sheet showing precisely what is coming from SQA so that everyone knows what to expect.
