ICT at The Brunts Academy

Course description

This broad-based qualification provides a more vocational perspective. Throughout the course, students develop all the necessary skills required in ICT and apply these within work-related contexts. The course also offers students the chance to personalise their path of study and obtain a qualification that meets both their individual aptitudes and interests. The aim of this specification is to encourage students to:

* Develop a broad range of ICT skills and knowledge of the uses of ICT in vocational contexts, as a basis for progression into further learning in ICT-related fields, including progression from AS to A2.

* Develop knowledge and understanding of the components, functions and applications of information systems within a range of organisations.

* Develop an understanding of the main principles of solving problems using ICT and develop the skills necessary to apply this understanding.

* Apply their knowledge and understanding of ICT and use skills (e.g. planning, research, evaluation, problem solving) in vocational contexts.

* Develop an understanding of the impact of information systems on organisations' personnel, policies and practices.

* Develop project management skills and an understanding of the need to work with others.
