Applied ICT / TGCh Cymhwysol A & AS Level WJEC at Ysgol Gyfun Gwyr

Course description


Course content

Studying ICT at Advanced level is a means of developing a deeper understanding of the significance of computers, applications and communications in the workplace and in every day life. Computer systems are used in a wide range of areas, from manufacturing and education to medicine, and ICT skills are valued in all aspects of business and society. In a world of constant technological innovation, there is a demand for people who have the skills to refine and apply new developments to the real world. There is a world-wide shortage of ICT graduates. The course in Applied ICT provides a completely new viewpoint on the world of Information and Communications Technology. The unit titles which include eBusiness, eTransact and eLearning, provide a glimpse of the radical nature of this qualification. Students will study units which are exciting and modern including on-screen examinations and tasks based on real organisations. Students will have the opportunity to develop a wide range of ICT skills within vocational contexts and will gain a deep understanding which will inform future options in employment, training and further study .Pure mathematics includes the study of algebra, geometry, trigonometry and calculus, where many of the ideas are an extension of the work studied at GCSE. Mechanics is primarily concerned with solving problems in dynamics and statics. Statistics is the study of collecting, presenting and analysing data, together with the development and application of probability theory and models. It is expected that those students who wish to study Mathematics to Advanced level, will have achieved a good grade at GCSE. There are numerous combinations which will give an A Level. Discussion with departmental staff to decide on the best combination for the pupils will be very important in the whole process
