Applied ICT A Level at Brimsham Green School

Course description

This is a broad based vocational qualification which aims to encourage students to develop broad skills, knowledge and understanding of the ICT sector. The qualification prepares students for further study or training.

At AS level, work involves producing documents to a professional standard for a purpose; these will include paper-based and multimedia electronic documents. ‘How organisations use ICT’ will examine how ICT is so pervasive in different organisations and the impact this has on working practices. Students will conduct an investigation and collect, analyse and present findings for the unit ‘ICT solutions for individuals and society’.

A2 level work involves more sophisticated use of software to produce solutions for a purpose, including the planning, implementation, and management of an ICT project.
