CISCO units

A writing team responsible for producing the updated HN units that link to the new CISCO curriculum met this morning to take forward this work. We hope to produce new units by the end of March next year. These units will fully incorporate the CISCO Explorer and Discoverer curriculum. Representatives of City of Glasgow, Motherwell, Angus, Cardonald, and Stow colleges attended.

A key part of the training was to try to produce very generic units that are fully compatible with CISCO but can also be delivered by centres not wishing to follow a specific vendor and also units that will not age too quickly and require regular updating. I appreciate that's easier said than done but the team were keen to try.

These new units will likely form part of the current HN review so Gerry Mackie, the lead developer for that project, came along and updated the team about what he is doing and what he needs from this development.
