Late last year I provided an update on the new PDA in Web Design award to let you know the timescales in which we planned to have this made available to centres.
There has been a delay in the development of the award, however we are now finalising each of the units and putting the finishing touches to the validation document.
The award will consist of three single credits at SCQF Level 7. The Units will be:
1. Website Design: Planning & Design
2. Website Design: Content Creation
3. Website Design: Development
We now plan to host the validation meeting at the beginning of May to allow for any conditions that may be placed on the award to be met and lifted. The award would then be available to centres from June 2011 onwards.
The new PDA is based on the official curriculum for the CIW Web Design Specialist (formally CIW Site Designer) qualification.
