At the risk of turning this website into a computer games blog, I have news about a new college-led development relating to computer games.
Forth Valley College approached SQA a few weeks ago, as part of the on-going review of National Certificates, to seek our support for the creation on a new National Certificate (NC) award relating to computer games. The college would lead a small consortium of centres in creating a new award entitled National Certificate in Computer Games Development at SCQF Levels 5 and 6.
We were happy to support this proposal, and ensured that the team behind it were fully aware of other national developments in this area, so, if all goes well, there should be a new NC award available to centres from August of this year. Contact Fiona Jackson for more information.
This NC would be the final piece in the jigsaw, given that NPAs and an HNC/D are already in production.
