New NPA awards

SQA has two types of validations: a "group award validation" and an "operational validation". The group award event is the one where a panel check the qualification proposal from an educational and employment perspective. Many of you will have served on such a validation panel in the past. An operational validation is an internal process to check that the proposed award "will work" - in other words, SQA can actually implement it.

Today we had the operational validation for three new NPAs:
  • NPA Still Images, Audio and Video (at SCQF Levels 4 and 5)
  • NPA Animation (at SCQF Level 5).
There were a few minor conditions but nothing serious. The next stage is the group award validation, which will take place later this month.

All three awards will be available to centres from July. Please contact Angela for more information.
