Applied ICT’s practical and skills-based approach ensures that students develop a real understanding of ICT that directly relates to the needs of employers.
These courses are designed to encourage students to learn through an analytical and practical approach, using a variety of sources and materials.
Learners will learn about tools and techniques for use in different digital hardware and software technologies, and how these can be integrated to create digital solutions to manage and communicate data and information.
They will also be taught what data and information are and the legal, ethical and moral considerations when using technology to gather, store and present data and information, and how to mitigate the risks of cyber-attacks.
They will not lose marks on other assignments for not handing in one specific piece of coursework.
