ICT for Librarians qualifications

We have offered two specialist awards for library staff since 2004 - both PDAs, one at SCQF Levels 7 and one at Level 8. Last year we revised the Level 7 award and we are currently revising the Level 8 qualification.

I met with the development team this morning to discuss progress. Ted Hastings is the lead developer and he is currently finalising the Level 8 award for planned validation in April. I'm hoping that this qualification will be on the books by August.

Although the actual uptake for these qualifications is small, their potential (given the number of librarians in the UK and Ireland) is good, and I'm hopeful that they will become popular in time. The Level 8 award is particularly interesting, featuring two new units: one on reflective practice and one on digital culture.

Contact Jacque if you want to know more about these awards.
