Get ready for work in the IT and business sectors with this information and communications technology qualification. You will study a number of modules and in addition you will develop your functional skills in English and maths.
You learn by a mixture of practical activities and individual research and individual and group work. The course team is always looking at introducing you to experts in the taught fields and you will need to attend a work experience placement in the second half of the year.
All units are assessed via a portfolio of coursework. Functional skills require you to sit an exam. Students on the course are required to improve on their maths or English at GCSE level so you will be asked to re-sit at least one of those subjects during the college year.
Alongside my work (at Cisco), I’ve been working hard to gain my BSc in Digital and Technology solutions. Time management and prioritisation skills have been key – skills that I learnt at college.”
You need four GCSEs at grade D, including English language and maths. You also need to demonstrate the appropriate level of literacy and numeracy in the initial assessment.
