NPAs in Computer Games

The first meeting of the Qualification Development Team (QDT) for the new NPAs in Computer Games Development was held this afternoon in the SQA offices in Glasgow.The Team has representatives from schools, colleges, Higher Education and industry. The lead developer is Julie McLaren, formerly of Forrester HS and about to take up a new post at Madras College in Fife.

We had an interesting discussion on the contents of the awards. The Team is proposing new awards at SCQF Levels 4, 5 and 6 (Intermediate 1, 2 and Higher), mostly consisting of existing National Units but we also intend to develop two new units, dealing explicity with the knowledge and skills involved in developing computer games.

We intend to consult on the contents of the new awards in the near future so look out for more information soon. In the meantime, please contact Hilary if you want to know more about this project. And don't forget the HNC/D Computer Games Development, which is on-going. Contact Caroline for more about this development.
