The QST for my HN awards met this morning to discuss the support needed for HN awards in my area (Computing, Networking, Multimedia, etc.).
The idea behind a QST is that ordinary lecturers can tell SQA about the sort of support materials that centres need to deliver our awards. They can also request changes to existing awards in the light of their experience in delivering the qualifications. It was a good meeting today with lots of actions coming from it.
It's not just members of the QST who have a voice. We also go through each request from centres and either agree to provide the support requested or offer an alternative. If you want the QST to consider an idea, please complete and submit this form.
We currently have two vacancies on the QST and I will request volunteers from the SQA Groupsite, so please join this group if you want to volunteer your services. It's a great way of ensuring that SQA supports qualifications in the way that you want.
