ICT & Computer Science

Following the successful delivery of Cambridge Nationals and Technicals we have sought to accredit students’ prior learning through the use of the E.C.D.L. qualification. We will continue to do so beyond 2017 as this has been widely recognised by students, parents and employers as a meaningful qualification that is valued by employers due to its recognition of practical ‘real-world’ application.
