Subject: Invitation for Comment on Proposed Business Courses. ACTION: fwd to teachers
Date: June 28, 2010
Two proposed courses have been received by the office of the TQA: Financial Literacy TQA 1; and Business Studies TQA 2.
The Authority has decided that courses that are submitted for accreditation consideration will be made available for public comment as part of the accreditation process.
Copies of courses submitted for accreditation are available at the TQA website page:
You are invited to comment on the following issues:
* are there any significant impediments to your organisation delivering this course if it wished to do so?
* if your organization were to deliver this course, are there any special transition arrangements needed for students in existing courses?
* is there any significant item of learning that should be removed from/added to the course?
* are there any reasons the Authority should consider sufficient grounds for refusing to accredit this course?
Email your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org by 12th July 2010. Be sure to specifically indicate the name of the course/s.
Please note that this invitation for comment is part of the accreditation process and comments need to address one or more of the issues noted above. This is not part of the course development process as that stage is now complete.
