Information and Communication Technology at Newmarket Academy

Course description

ICT skills are becoming ever more crucial to a large number of occupations and organisations. The Cambridge TEC is a new course that replaces the OCR Nationals and is designed to offer a number of 'pathways' which should suit multiple purposes. It is a course suitable for students wanting a thorough grounding in the use of ICT, through to those wishing to enter into the ICT profession and to those intending to study ICT at a higher level. 

We have designed the course to enable a student to choose to take just the AS level equivalent qualification for one year or to carry on and acheive the full qualification and A2 equivalent over the two years.
