In a nutshell

This is a technical and enjoyable look into the world of ICT

This course is for you if...

... You love working with computers
... You want a practical and theoretical study course
... You want a better insight into software and hardware applications

What will I be doing?

You’ll learn to use both software and hardware applications. You’ll study the following::

AS Level

  • Information systems (IT1)
  • Presenting information (IT2)

A Level

  • Use and impact of ICT (IT3)
  • Relational databases (IT4)

The AS and A Level ICT courses, normally delivered as part of a full-time programme of study, are offered during the daytime, spread over three days. Therefore, they’re also suitable for those who wish to take a single subject and are able to attend at varied times during the week.

The course is a combination of written papers and coursework. Upon successful completion, you’ll achieve:

  • AS Level Information and Communication Technology
  • A Level Information and Communication Technology

  • English and Maths

What is expected of me?

To enter this course, you’ll need a minimum of 5 GCSEs at Grade C or above, including English

Full commitment to attendance is required, as is respect for others, enthusiasm for the subject and self-motivation. You’ll be continually assessed and there is an expectation that you’ll continue your studies and coursework during your own time.

What comes next?

The course provides useful skills and knowledge to complement a wide range of subjects. However, those who wish to proceed to higher education to study either Computing or Computer Science are recommended to study A Level Computing.
