As you may know, we are currently revising HNC/D Interactive Media. The Qualification Design Team (QDT) met for the first time on Friday. The QDT is responsible for all aspects of the development. I chair the group. The QDT has representatives of various Scottish colleges (including City of Glasgow, Fife, Ayrshire and New College).
It was a positive and productive meeting. There was a lot of agreement about the changes that need to be made. And one in particular - that the focus should be on web development. In fact, a title change to HNC/D Web Development is a possibility. But no-one wanted major changes. The current course was dated but still popular "with great job prospects" as one of the members pointed out. So, it will be a clear evolution from what we have.
We're looking for more representation from universities and employers so if you know anyone who could help please let Caroline know.
We're not sure about timescales for this development but it's like to be available to centres from January 2016. Contact Caroline for more information about the development or to join the team.
