Course Overview

IT is at the heart of everyday life, at home, work and in our leisure time from computer graphics and control systems to communications and problem solving, IT has an ever increasing role to play.

The course includes practical activities in all units - learn, do, review - and will help develop transferable skills for the workplace or future studies. You will be able to express your creative side with units focusing on multimedia components or the power of digital imagery.

As a student you will be in class for a minimum of 17.5 hours per week.

Modules may include:

  • Communication and employability skills for IT

  • Information systems

    Optional modules may be the following depending on availability:

  • Website Development

  • Computer Graphics

  • Customise Software

  • Computer Systems

  • Installing Computing Hardware

  • Employability Skills

You will be required to complete Essential Skills in Literacy and Numeracy if you do not have a GCSE grade C in English or Maths.

Entry Requirements

3 GCSE's at grade D or above, with a preference to having achieved ES ICT or GCSE equivalent. Applicants must also attend an interview.

Where will it take me?

This course can lead to further study - entry into one of our Level 3 programmes for example - or as a basis for the workplace. The course provides you with a work related qualification which will support progression to an NVQ once you are in the workplace. The programme is equivalent to 4 GCSEs.

How will it make me more employable?

You will ‘Get the Edge’ by:


• Gaining a vocational qualification demonstrating your technical competence
• Gaining a Personal Development qualification demonstrating your employability skills (communication, teamwork, critical thinking)
• Gaining hands on experience through Placements and Industry Projects
• Getting involved in activities such as the SERC Volunteer Programme and SERC Student Companies.


This course will help you succeed in a highly competitive job market by developing the skills and knowledge which employers need you to have.


How will I be assessed and given feedback?
You will be continually assessed throughout the year on practical assignments and written work. These are tied in to each unit and you will have the opportunity to achieve pass, merit and distinction according to your ability.
Additional Costs

There are not normally any additional costs though students will benefit from having access to a computer or laptop at home.


This course is accredited by OCR.
