Review of Digital vocational qualifications SCQF levels 3-6

As you may know from a previous blog post, we are currently reviewing the following awards and units in our digital portfolio:

NPA Digital Literacy (SCQF level 3)

NPA Digital Passport (SCQF levels 4-6)

NPA Social Software (SCQF level 4)

NUs Computer Basics (SCQF levels 3-4)

Following consultation with a focus group including teachers, lecturers and training providers several recommendations have been proposed. Please help us to ensure these proposals are the right steps to take by completing and returning this short survey which should not take longer than five minutes to complete. It would be appreciated if you could submit responses by 21 June 2021.

I am the DHT with responsibility for the Digital Centre at Newbattle High School. We have been developing a BGE digital literacy curriculum that leads to the NPA in Digital Literacy. We aim to present 150+ entries for this course in 2021-22. I would be really interested in being part of the revamp of the Digital Literacy and/or Digital Passport.
