The DIVA project forged links with a number of IT vendors and organisations, one of which is the British Computer Society (BCS). SQA and BCS recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to cement our relationship. The MoU signals both parties' intentions to help each other in a variety of ways.
Since then, I've had a couple of meetings with BCS people to turn these good intentions into concrete actions that will benefit the users of SQA awards. We already have a number of exciting ideas that we plan to develop in the coming months. Look out for more news on this blog.
SQA has been a leader in the way it links its qualifications to industry standards, and the SQA/BCS relationship typifies the way that we seek to work with UK and international partners to make our awards as relevant as possible to learners.
