There were two important meetings this afternoon. One related to the HND Computer Games qualification that is currently under development, and the other related to the new SVQs that we are producing.
The QDT for the HND Computer Games Development award met to discuss progress. The project is being led by Tony Gurney. We are at the consultation/market research stage so things tend to move a little slowly but we are making progress. There is currently an online survey and we plan two public meetings in early June to discuss our plans (one in Glasgow and one in Dundee). Contact Caroline for more information about this development.
At the same time, there was also a meeting about SVQs. E-Skills recently revised the National Occupational Standards for IT Users and we now have the task of creating new qualifications (SVQs) to match the new Standards. David Drennan is leading this work. We're not sure what the time scale will be but new SVQs will be available in the not too distant future. Contact Shirley for more information on this development.
