The QDT for the new NPA in Computer Games Development met this morning to work on writing the units.
We have already developed the framework for the awards at SCQF Levels 4, 5 and 6. You can download the framework here. The framework is as simple and consistent as we could make it. The NPAs will be in a hierarchy so that teachers can mix and match levels and the students still gain an award.
The draft units are due by 19 February so the purpose of today was simply to have a face-to-face opportunity to get on with the writing. I'll share the units as soon as I have completed versions.
I've had a few enquiries about when these awards will be available to centres. We will validate the qualifications (at all three levels) in April so it will be "on the books" in May or June but certainly before the summer.
