    question for NTTT (or anyone else in a position to answer):

    how hard is it for the Corps to get OU accreditation for our language courses? 75 points towards a degree (level 1, 2 or 3 depending on level) might not be a massive amount, but it could mean a year less study and one less module (£525 to £935).

    in these days of disgruntled linguists and language pay that only about 3 people qualify for, perhaps this is a low-cost incentive that might improve their morale a little? bless 'em ;)
