OCR National Level in ICT at Feltham Community College (School)

Course description

This qualification will form part of the OCR Nationals suite. It is a revision of the OCR Level 2 IT National. The current OCR Level 2 IT National only offers one full qualification at Level 2. The OCR Level 2 Certificate has been designed to address the needs of candidates at Level 2, who would benefit from a programme providing motivation through step-by-step achievement. The OCR Level 2 National Certificate in ICT is unit based and has been designed to provide accreditation of the knowledge, understanding and skills that would be needed by an employee in an office environment either in an administrative role or junior IT support role. The qualification has been designed to develop candidates' ICT knowledge, understanding and skills by offering a broad range of user and practitioner units. All units have been mapped to the KS4 ICT National Curriculum. This suite of ICT qualifications will provide the opportunity for candidates to meet the POS for this non-core foundation subject. Each unit represents a worthwhile achievement in its own right and certification is available at unit level
