This new qualification replaces a number of Multimedia-related HN awards such as HNC Multimedia Web Development and HNC Interactive Multimedia Creation. It was validated in June but with a number of conditions, which the Qualification Development Team has been working on over the summer. They're just about there now, and me and the convener of the validation panel (Walter Patterson) meet on Monday (13th) to (hopefully) lift the conditions and get this award on the books.
It's likely to be a couple of weeks before everything is in place (assuming the conditions are lifted on Monday) but if you're planning on running this award this coming session and need to see something now then you can get the Validation Proposal Document from Laura.
I'll keep you posted on developments.
