I attended a meeting this morning, which included an update from Gill MacFarlane about the current review of core skills. The core skill team in SQA has been consulting about the existing core skill framework with a view to updating it. The IT framework is badly in need of an update.
The framework is in the final stages of being revised and the new version will be used to create new core skill units, which are due to be published in December. We're hoping that centres will offer the new units from August 2008.
Contact Gill (0845-213-5461) for more information.
