Over 40 people voted in the poll (see panel on right) about your intentions regarding computer games. The results are very positive with almost everyone being interested in qualifications in this area. Not really a surprise but good to see none-the-less. It was also the largest response to a poll on this blog that we've ever had.
The validation for the new HNC/D Computer Games Development takes place on Friday, 12 March. This will be followed, sometime in April, by the validation of the NPAs (at Intermediate 1, 2 and Higher). So, there will be qualifications spanning SCQF Levels 4-8 available by the summer. I received the validation proposal document from the lead developer of the HN awards this morning and the qualification looks very exciting, with units in Game Technology, 3D Level Editing, AI, Game Physics, and History, Evolution and Impact of Computer Games.
