We completed the Group Award Specification for this award today and it has now been submitted for (internal) validation. You can see the final version here. The units have been ready for some time but were not published on the website because they weren’t coded. You can see final (uncoded) versions of the units here.

The validation of the group award should be straight-forward since we haven’t changed the structure of the award. However, we have significantly updated and improved the component units (which have already been validated).

I appreciate that we’re late to finalise the qualification given how close it is to the end of session but I hope some of your consider the new version of the award since the units are much better, with significantly less assessment than the current versions.

I’ll let you know when the award is validated but, in the meantime, contact Claudia if you want further information about the revised qualification.

The changes look really good. A more streamlined course that will be easy to switch over to from the existing course. I will be going with the new units next session and encourage others to do the same. I am also happy with the level 6 requiring coding. A big thank you and well done to the development group.

Thanks for your comments, Julie. I’m glad that you like it. I think it’s an incremental improvement over the current version.
