Computing. A Subject-Based Aspect Report on Provision in Scotland's Colleges by HM Inspectors on Behalf of the Scottish Funding Council
Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Education
The HMIE publication, "External quality arrangements for Scotland's colleges," specifies that HMIE will produce a number of subject aspect reports over the four years 2008-12. These aspect reports complement in a subject-specific context the generic evaluations of learning and teaching in HMIE's reports of external review of colleges. Colleges should act on the recommendations contained in these reports and college inspectors will monitor action towards implementation of these recommendations as part of their normal dialogue with colleges. They will also wish to discuss issues arising from subject aspect reports during annual engagement visits. In preparing this report, inspectors visited a sample of ten colleges, drew on the findings of published HMIE reviews of colleges, and examined other relevant publications and reports. They consulted with key stakeholders, including The Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA), college practitioners, and Scotland's Colleges. This aspect report identifies important areas for discussion and debate and evaluates current practice. It identifies excellent practice where HM Inspectors have found it and sets out areas for development. An appendix provides a list of the colleges visited in the preparation of this report. (Contains 7 footnotes.)
