City of Liverpool College University Centre has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
This HND in Computing builds on previous experience and develops students as professional, self-respecting individuals, able to meet both the demands of employers in the computing sector and adapt to a constantly changing world. The qualification aims to widen access to higher education and enhance the career prospects of those who undertake it. The course provides students with a thorough grounding in computing principles at Level 5 that leads on to a range of specialist progression pathways at Level 6, relating to individual professions within the computing sector.
At Level 5, students develop a broad knowledge and awareness of key aspects of the computing sector through seven core units, which include one unit assessed by a Pearson-set assignment. These units are: • Computing Research Project (30 credit modules) • Business Intelligence • Advanced Programming • Forensics • Prototyping • Games Development • Emerging Technologies. Holders of the Higher National Diploma Level 5 will have developed a sound understanding of the principles in their field of study (Computing) and will have learned to apply those principles more widely.
The programme is assessed through submission of written reports and practical solutions such as programming, database development and web applications. Formative assessment is primarily developmental in nature and is designed to give feedback to students on their performance and progress, with support. Summative assessment is given where students are provided with the assignment grades contributing towards the overall unit grade.
