ICT (BTEC Level 3 Certificate) at The Sixth Form College Colchester
This is an ideal course for students who wish to gain a high level of knowledge and practical competence in Information Technology. The content of this course will equip students with the skills needed for many careers in the modern world. Students will study the fundamentals of information technology, including: ethics, legislation, cyber security, networks, cloud technology and general application in a business environment.
The second year will provide students with design and development skills, a thorough understanding of data management and the opportunity to put some of these concepts into practice in the form of an IT project.
The course will require students to study for a number of examinations as well as practically assessed modules. Previous GCSE study of Computing or ICT will be beneficial but not necessary. However, students will be expected to engage in both theory and practical lessons and have a keen interest in technology.
Students are expected to have obtained a minimum of Grade C (or 4)or above in GCSE Mathematics, English or English Language and also a minimum of grade C in two GCSE sciences. If students have studied an ICT related, non-GCSE, qualification, a Merit or above grade would be expected. If GCSE Computing or ICT has been studied, a minimum of grade C is required.
