The SQA are developing a National Progress Award in Data Science at levels 4, 5, and 6. As the lead developer, I am researching demand and consulting interested parties as to the structure, format and content of the NPAs. I really want this to be a qualification that fits with the requirements of schools and colleges.
Please can you spare five minutes to fill in a survey about the proposed NPAs. Almost all the questions are optional, so feel free to respond to any question that you feel strongly about and ignore those you have no option on or no time for!
The survey is here: http://bit.ly/NPADS
(It is a Google Form. Please get in touch if this is an issue for you and you still want to respond)
If you want to find out more about the proposed models, there is more information here: http://bit.ly/NPAdatamodels (although all this information is in the survey)
