The verifiers for Computing met today in Glasgow as part of their on-going schedule of regular meetings.
These meetings are very useful for verifiers to meet each other and discuss field issues, and the Senior Verifier (David Drennan) uses it to keep his EV team up-to-date withe developments. I also took the opportunity to inform the EVs about what's going on in my team, including the new HNDs (Interactive Media and Computer Games Development), changes to the National Occupational Standards, and achievement problems with HNC/D Computing. Caroline spoke about the support materials for the HN awards related to Computing/IT.
Being an External Verifier is a great way to keep up-to-date with what's going on across Scotland so contact SQA if you want to be considered for this role.
