AS and A2 Level ICT at The Willink School

Course description

We follow the AQA specification.


At AS, there are 2 complementary units concerned with applying ICT to solve problems and the study of the opportunities for and effects of using ICT in the world today. Students have the opportunity to put into practice a wide range of software and hardware to create solutions to solve problems:

- INFO1: Practical Problem Solving in the Digital World

- NFO2: Living in the Digital World.


At A2, students study the concepts associated with the use of ICT in the 21st century. They also have opportunities for acquiring skills needed in the IT profession such as co-operative working and project management.

These practical skills can be developed in areas of ICT that are of interest to them. Students can also use these newly acquired skills as a springboard into other qualifications and working environments:

- INFO3: The Use of ICT in the Digital World

- INFO4: Coursework: Practical Issues Involved in the Use of ICT in the Digital World.
