There are a number of qualifications available at GCE Level. Students may undertake:

  • AS in Applied ICT (three units);
  • AS in Applied ICT Double Award (six units)
  • GCE in Applied ICT (six units); or
  • GCE in Applied ICT Double Award (twelve-units)

The three-unit award offers a broad based introduction to ICT and is suitable either as a complementary vocational course for students taking two to three other A Level studies or as a foundation course in the vocational area of ICT.

The six-unit course is appropriate either as further vocational study in the area of ICT or as a vocational AS or A Level for students taking two other A level subjects.

The twelve-unit course is appropriate for students planning to undertake higher level studies in ICT-related areas such as Web Design, Multimedia, Networking, and Programming.

The table below outlines the Applied ICT courses available at GCE. Units marked with a C are compulsory. Units marked with an O are optional.
