The validation event for the proposed NC Digital Media Computing at Level 6 took place on Friday... and was approved without conditions! There were several (eight) recommendations. The Development Team were delighted with this outcome since it is unusual for no conditions to be placed on an award.
This outcome was testimony to the hard work put in by the QDT and especially Water Paterson, Gillian Leitch, Bill Brown and Angela. But lots of people were involved in writing and checking units, and preparing documentation.
So, once we've done some background administration, this Level 6 award (the first new NC award validated by SQA) will be available to centres. We've still got some units to finalise but the whole package will be ready in March.
In the meantime, contact Angela if you want to start your planning sooner.
