Review of HNC/HND Frameworks in Music, Music Business & Sound Production

Following scoping exercises completed in early 2016, a business case has been approved to conduct a significant review and update of the HN frameworks in Music, Music Business and Sound Production. The development period will start in the autumn of 2016 and the revised qualifications will be available from August 2018.

We invite colleagues to come together and contribute to this development period which will include revisions to existing Units and the addition of new Units to the existing HNC/HND frameworks. We are looking for Qualification Design Team (QDT) members, Unit writers and Unit vetters.

If you are interested in this work please complete the SQA Qualification Design Team Registration of Interest Form, available from the Related Information section below. Please note that separate QDTs will be formed for each subject - Music, Music Business and Sound Production. Please return this form to qualificationsadmin@sqa.org.uk by Monday 5 September 2016.
