What is expected of you: It is important that students are fully prepared for a large workload and they are self-disciplined to be able to meet deadlines. Don’t worry if you feel that you have not got these skills yet, as the course will help you improve them. You will also need a basic level of IT and good communication skills. The course is designed to encourage independent learning and you will need to ensure you are responsible for your own learning. This means you will need to be fully aware of what is required from a task in terms of outcomes. You will be given tracking sheets and feedback which will allow you to monitor and track your own progress.

What it prepares you for:

Successful completion of the course will allow access to undergraduate degree programmes or employability within the IT sector.

Entry Requirements: You will need to have achieved 5 GCSEs at least grade C and a pass grade in IT.
