Refreshed HND Computer Science

I recently posted an update about the revision of HND Computer Science. Since then the QDT has finalised the framework. The main change to the qualification is that Managing a Web Server has been replaced by Computer Architecture in the mandatory section of the award. We’ve also tidied the optional units to make them more relevant to the field of computer science.

We’re currently working on the group award specification (GAS) and hope to have this ready in the next few weeks. Once it is, we’ll get the award validated around March and available to centre shortly thereafter (April orĀ May).

Please contact Helen for more information about this qualification. The existing qualification will continue to be available to centres until 2021. Later this year, we will commence the review of the suite of HN Computing awards. The revised version of this qualification will be part of that review.
