I visited Forth Valley College yesterday to help the centre with a curricular issue. The college offers a number of vocational Computing qualifications, but focus on Computer Games at non-advanced level and Software Development at advanced level. The centre wanted some advice about their NC Computer Games Development award, which I was happy to give.
I was also given a tour of the college's science and computing facilities, and I was introduced to a class of their NC Games students, who were busy in one of the computing labs.
The centre offers NPAs and NCs in Computer Games Development. Fiona Jackson, who leads these awards, told me about the high demand for the programmes and the high quality and enthusiasm of the students who do them.
Me and my team like to visit centres, time permitting, whenever we can so please don't hesitate to request a visit if we can help you in any way. Please contact Hilary for more information about SQA's Computer Games qualifications.
