Applied Information Communication Technology
The rise of Google, the rise of Facebook, the rise of Apple, I think are proof that there is a place for computer science as something that solves problems that people face every day.
Eric Schmidt

In the Information Age there are very few professions that do not either directly or indirectly make use of ICT and computing.

This subject is designed to develop knowledge workers of the future, equipped with a broad understanding of ICT and able to reflect on how ICT has changed the way we live, work and conduct business.

The Edexcel A Level in Applied ICT aims to produce effective, discerning ICT users who can select and use appropriate ICT tools and techniques to help them carry out investigations, capture and handle data, solve problems, sequence instructions, make decisions, and communicate information effectively. It also develops critical thinking, problem solving and project management skills.

Course Requirements

You would benefit most from an A Level in Applied ICT if you have a GCSE in ICT grade C or above; you should also have a desire to research and keep abreast of current developments in ICT in order to enhance the knowledge and skills you need to be a competent and informed ICT user and practitioner.

Opportunities

Information and Communication Technology has a broad appeal and the skills acquired through study for the AS or A2 level in Applied ICT will support further study in a range of disciplines such as Computer Science, Business Computing, Information Systems, Computer Networks, Multimedia, Software Engineering, Computer Forensics, e-Business, Website Development, Games and Software Creation and Information Management to name a few, as well as being a useful skill in any subject area and profession.

The rise of Google, the rise of Facebook, the rise of Apple, I think are proof that there is a place for computer science as something that solves problems that people face every day.
