What's coming in 2010

A number of developments should reach fruition early in 2010 (or, at least, first half of the year). These include:
  • NPAs in Computer Games (at SCQF Levels 4/5/6)
  • HNC/D Computer Games Development
  • PDA in Child Online Protection
  • SVQs in IT Professional
  • new units relating to FITS
  • improved PC Passport units and assessments.
We will also commence some new developments including:
  • review of HNC/D Computer Networking
  • review of HNC/D Computing
  • new vendor linked awards.
We also plan to work with centres to improve assessment within vocational Computing qualifications. Let us know through the comment facility if you think we should be doing anything else (or not doing any of these things).

So, it's going to be a busy year. You can help us carry out these tasks (and get paid for the privelege!) by joining the SQA Groupsite.
