Computing

Computer Science A Level is a practical subject where students can apply the     academic principles learned in the classroom to real-world systems. It is an intensely creative subject that combines invention and excitement, and can look at the natural world through a digital prism.

An A Level in Computer Science will value computational thinking, helping learners to develop the skills to solve problems, design systems and understand the power and limits of human and machine intelligence. Learners will develop an ability to  analyse, critically evaluate and make decisions.

Computer Science can lead to a huge variety of career options such as game design, cyber security, digital marketing and future technologies.  While a GCSE in Computer Science is not essential, strong mathematical skills will help with different areas of the course. 

 

The objective of this BTEC Level 3 qualification is to give learners the opportunity to develop their knowledge and skills in IT systems, systems management and social media in business. This will enable learners to progress to further study in the IT sector or other sectors.

Learners will develop a common core of IT knowledge and study areas such as the relationship between hardware and software that form an IT system, managing and processing data to support business and using IT to communicate and share information.
