What I'll learn

Get ready for work in the IT and business sectors with this information and communications technology qualification.

 

How I'll learn

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.

 

How I'll be assessed

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.

 

Entry Requirements

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.
