Course description

The course is split into a number of different units, some of which are mandatory. Students will look at various areas of Information Technology, gaining a broad but deep understanding of the many different elements of the industry. Students will look at Information systems, what they are and how they work. Students can expect to learn a host of new skills in games development, mobile app development and master skills of creating websites both by using HTML coding and web authoring tools.

Entry requirements

5 GCSE at grade 5 or above. Students must have achieved grade 5 or above in Maths and a 5 in English. Students will require a GCSE grade C (or Equivalent) in an IT related qualification.

Assessment

In the course there are likely to be two exams, two controlled assessment tasks (set and assessed by the exam board) and the rest of the units of work are assessed by internally set coursework tasks.

Future opportunities

There is barely an industry or profession which doesn’t require an element of competency in ICT. These modules have been designed by industry professionals and university course leaders to ensure that all the skills deemed necessary to function confidently in the digital age are included in this specification.

    • A Warm and Welcoming Environment                              

      At Ossett we realise how important your learning environment is and how the facilities that we provide can help successfully support you in your studies.  Through Student Voice we have worked together to create a warm and welcoming Sixth Form Centre, which houses purpose-built classrooms and an Independent Learning Centre, where students also benefit from state-of-the-art ICT facilities, free Wi-Fi access.  We have also recently added a second Sixth Form study facility which provides additional space and ICT access for independent study.  The Lounge café and Post 16 Common Room provides a great place to eat, and comes complete with 2 large TV screens, network points and student lockers.  It’s the ideal place to meet with friends and take a break from your studies.

      The Independent Learning Centre and Post 16 iBase

      Housed within the Sixth Form Centre you will find the Independent Learning Centre, or ILC, which is heavily used throughout the day by all our Sixth Form students. Here you will find a range of paper-based and electronic resources which have been specifically selected by subject staff to help support you in your independent study. If you need help with subject specific references, producing a presentation or simply in need of a photocopy then our full-time Post-16 Learning Mentor is on hand throughout the day to ensure that you are fully supported in your access to important information. Whether you need time for quiet private study or maybe some group work, the ILC provides private study booths and communal areas to allow students to work in different ways. The ILC also provides fantastic ICT facilities, with a full ICT suite, free Wi-Fi access and netbook loan. All students have access to a dedicated careers' advisor who is available to help students make decisions about their future progression.  The facilities on offer in the ILC have recently been extended to iBase which is used exclusively by Post 16 students and offers study support for all students throughout the college day.

      In need of breakfast before your first lesson, a filling tasty lunch or maybe just a coffee at break time then you’ll find what you are looking for at The Lounge - our student centred café housed within the Sixth Form Centre. From subs to soup, pasta to pizzas we cater for all tastes, providing the foods that you like to eat at an affordable price.
