ICT : Level 2 Technical Extended Certificate (= 1 GCSE) at WQE

Course description

Level 2 Cambridge Technicals are vocational qualifications that are designed to give a work-focused alternative to GCSEs. They’ve been designed to give students opportunities to demonstrate and develop the practical application of knowledge and understanding in the areas of work that appeal to them. This will enable students to develop research skills whilst studying, both independently and with colleagues, to progress through the qualifications.

Course content

The course is taught using lectures, demonstrations, practical work, group activities and individual study. Teachers are well-qualified and experienced in their field of expertise, and they provide students with a high level of professional support.

Entry requirements

A minimum of five GCSEs at Grade D/3 including English Language, from a mixture of GCSEs and equivalents.


The assessment for the qualifications is task-based, so you won’t need to take exams to achieve Cambridge Technicals qualifications. You will complete 4 units and be assessed on the assignment work you produce.

Future opportunities

The qualification is offered as a progression route to Level 3. It can equally provide progression into employment in an ICT-related field. The skills and knowledge developed would support a number of career opportunities in the ICT sector.
