ICT students follow a course leading to Functional Skills qualifications. The course involves evidence produced by the students using software packages on the computer system along with written investigational work.
During the course students will gain knowledge of computing at both the practical and theoretical level with a particular emphasis on the use of computing and ICT in the real world.
In Years 7, 8 and 9 students follow a course in computing that aims to equip them with the fundamental skills of many computer applications (databases and information handling, word-processing, desktop publishing, graphics, multimedia, spreadsheets, computer simulations, and information resources) and to introduce them to many applications of IT and computers in society and its subsequent effects.
In Years 10 and 11, students are working towards achieving Entry Level or Functional Skills qualifications.
