As you may know, we have recently appointed a Qualification Development Team (QDT) to take forward the production of an HN Unit which will cover the above IBM course content and will be available for inclusion into various HN Group Awards from 1st August 2008. The Unit value will be 2 credits (80 notional hours) at SCQF Level 7 and currently has the working title of ‘Multi User Transactional Operating System: Operator’. The writing process for this HN Unit is now underway.
IBM have arranged a five day ‘Teach the Teachers’ course available to all FE staff, which will take place from Monday 18th August until Friday 22nd August 2008 – this is an excellent CPD opportunity for those individuals in attendance. This course covers the IBM System i Operator Course and will assist lecturers in delivering the new HN Unit. There are a limited number of available places on this course, therefore, places will be booked on a first come first served basis.
The course will take place in Cumbernauld Business and Conference Centre, Town Centre, Cumbernauld G67 1HU. To book a place (only one per centre) please contact Scott Miller by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by telephone (0845 213 5472).
