ICT (Functional Skills)

This course is designed to give pupils the essential ICT skills needed to support their current and future learning, whether in a further education or an employment setting.  The confident and problem solving use of ICT is a facility which is essential to the twenty-first century student. While ICT involves practical application it can also be extremely creative in relation to the design of interactive or printed materials.  

A Year 9 pupil should expect to complete their course having a secure knowledge of Microsoft Office applications, an understanding of computer systems and, centrally, the use to which their knowledge can be put in enhancing other areas of the academic curriculum.
