HNC/D Interactive Media update
Helen and I met with the Lead Developer (Fiona Murnin of New College Lanarkshire) this afternoon to discuss progress with this development. It’s at the same stage as the HNC/D Computer Games Development review – the team are busy writing the new and revised units. This is a larger development than Computer Games, with 27 new or revised units being written. Some are almost complete and some are at an early stage. I’ve asked for all of the units to be completed by the middle of February.
A lot of progress has been made. New titles have been decided, the aims of the qualification have been agreed, a structure has been proposed, unit writers have been trained, and (as noted above) unit writing is underway. Fiona has made a lot of progress with the Group Award Specification. The proposed new titles are:
- HNC Digital Design & Web Development
- HND Digital Development
- HND Web Development.
There will be a third (and final) QDT meeting at the end of February when we will review progress and decide a feasible date for making the new award available to centres.
Of course, everything needs to be validated before it’s finalised. The validation date will depend on the progress that we make in the next few weeks. Please read the qualification FAQ if you want more information or contact Helen if you have a question not answered by the FAQ.
