ICT Btec Level 3 at Finchley Catholic High School

Course description

The BTEC Level 3 in Information Technology is a course designed to develop a student’s understanding of key issues related to IT as well as their practical skills using a wide range of software. In the first year students will cover topics such as computer hardware, computer maintenance, IT communication within organisations and the production of websites. The topics covered in the second year of study include network architecture & technologies, e-Commerce, network security and the installation and upgrading of software.


The assessment of the course is based on the work done throughout the year in directed  class time and private study. Therefore, the course is particularly suited to students who prefer a coursework based approach to external examination. The course is an excellent foundation for further study of the subject or many possible future careers within the field of IT.
