Online materials for NC/NPA awards

Me and Hilary met with Graeme Clark, of the E-Assessment & Learning team, this morning to discuss electronic support materials for non-advanced awards.

Over the last couple of years, through the TranSETT programme, a range of e-learning and e-assessment materials have been produced to support NCs and NPAs, such as the NC in Digital Media Computing and the NPA PC Passport.

The purpose of the meeting was to update us about what's coming. New materials, for awards like the NPA in Computer Games Development, are coming soon.

I was impressed with the quantity of materials available to support my awards. But we agreed that many centres did not know exactly what was available or where to find it. So Graeme is going to speak at the forthcoming Heads of Computing event, and Hilary is going to write a letter to centres to let you know what's available and where to get it. She will also post a message on this blog, with links to the materials.

Contact Graeme if you want to know more about TranSETT. Contact Hilary if you want to know more about non-advanced awards in this area.
