One of the advantages of this blog and the forums is that we can use these communication channels to let people know about current developments. It is one of SQA's strengths that, unlike most awarding bodies, we mostly use ordinary teachers and lecturers to develop the curriculum. But, sometimes, even these methods fail to find the people that we need to help us develop qualifications and assessments.
So I have created a "groupsite" for individuals who are interested in working with me and my team. The idea is that, as opportunities arise, I will put information about the project on this site and seek volunteers to come forward and assist with the work. I have used a service called Groupsite, which, unusually, is very strong on profiling and background information... which is ideal for the sort of task I want to use it for.
So, if you want to be sure to know about opportunities to develop awards and support materials, please join this group. It's a simple process to sign-up and once you do you will be sure to know what is going on in SQA and how you can get involved.
We'll continue to use the usual channels to identify people to work with us, but this service will ensure that you don't miss any opportunities.
