I spend a lot of my time talking to vendors. As you may know, as part of the DIVA initiative, SQA has developed links with many leading industry organisations, such as Microsoft, Oracle, Cisco and Adobe.
Caroline and I met with Marjorie Quigley of ComputerPREP this morning to talk about the CIW qualification. The newly developed PDA in Web Technologies at SCQF Level 7 covers the CIW Foundation curriculum. According to Marjorie, a large number of FE colleges in Scotland plan to offer this qualification, once the PDA is available, which it will be at the end of April (it was validated with conditions last week).
You can find out more about CIW from Marjorie, more about this new PDA from Angela and more about vendor links from Caroline.
