ICT: Key Skills ICT Level 2 at Comberton Village College & Sixth Form

Course description

ICT as a core subject: All pupils not selecting ICT as an option subject will study a course that covers the requirements of the National Curriculum. Pupils will also be assessed using the Key Skills level 2 Information Technology qualification. Therefore all pupils will have the opportunity to leave with a qualification in ICT, which is equivalent to ¾ of a higher grade GCSE. Key Skills level 2 in Information Technology This is a qualification without grades – pupils must demonstrate their use and understanding of ICT through production of two small projects and a one hour multiple-choice exam. The course covers the use of spreadsheets and databases as well as more general ICT skills such as researching and presenting information. Teaching Group Organisation Pupils will probably be taught in mixed ability teaching groups unless the timetable structure allows some setting. Assessment The course will be assessed by means of the production of two projects and a one hour multiple-choice exam. Homework There will be little homework set, but it may be in a variety of forms: - Research about a topic e.g. their own village’s history - Proof-reading of work completed in class - To find material or take photographs to bring in to use in projects
