ICT is essential subject for students so that they have the necessary knowledge, understanding and skills in this subject to cope with a rapidly changing employment scene where the ability to use ICT is crucial for their future prospects within further education and work. The course focuses on the ICT skills needed for business and also on creative aspects of multimedia design. Because the course is assessed through examinations and coursework portfolios, it teaches students important skills of time management and taking responsibility for their own learning.
Having studied ICT, students can continue to take ICT at level 3 in the 6th form or they could study computing at ‘A’ level. The skills they will acquire in ICT will give an excellent preparation for any ICT work they are required to do in other subjects now and in the future.
