NPA QDT meeting today

We're in the process of finalising three NPAs and developing six new ones.

The three being finalised are:
  1. Digital Media Basics (Level 4)
  2. Digital Media Editing (Level 5)
  3. Digital Animation (Level 5)
We're hoping to have the validation conditions lifted within the next month.

This morning I met with the development team for the new NPAs. These are:
  1. Digital Media Production (Level 6)
  2. Website Enterprise (Level 6)
  3. Computer Hardware & Software (Level 5)
  4. Software Development (Level 5)
  5. Social Software (Level 4)
  6. Digital Photography (Level 5).
These new awards are already well along the road to being written, and the validation event for them will take place on Monday, 1 June. We're looking for validation panel members if you want to be involved.

Please contact Shirley if you want to know more about these developments or serve on the validation panel.

    Will students who pass the relevent units this academic year which make up the new (to be validated) NPA's, be awarded the NPA?

  2. Hi Kenny. We hope the new awards will be available to centres from 1 August 2009. Retrospective certification is possible, if you enter your candidates for the group award once it is on the books (and you know the titles and codes).
