Cambridge Technical Introductory Diploma in IT (Single and Triple A-Level Equivalent)
Subject Specific Entry Criteria
Standard entry criteria for the Sixth Form (useful to have studied ICT in Year 10/11)
Dependent on study path (single or triple A Level)
ICT is a modern, relevant subject that is ideally suited to someone who wishes to pursue an apprenticeship or full time job in the industry. The course can be selected as either a single or triple A Level equivalent option. Those studying the single A Level will gain a broad understanding of ICT across a range of units; some practical (e.g. web design) and some theory based (e.g. cyber security). Those studying the triple A Level equivalent option will gain a deep understanding in a wide range of ICT topics, with many being highly practical such as product development or software engineering. In both courses, there is a weighting more towards coursework than exams, and this structure benefits those students who gain a satisfaction from each lesson building towards the final qualification.
