ICT Level 1 Certificate in Employability

Entry Qualifications

A minimum of five grade Es or 2s at GCSE, or equivalent subjects, including English Language.

What will I study?

This is an introductory course in Employability (ICT). Learners will:

• Be provided with the opportunity to develop a range of skills and techniques including personal skills and attributes essential for successful performance in working life

• Achieve a nationally recognised Level 1 vocationally related qualification

• Progress to related general and/or vocational qualifications e.g. OCR Level 2 qualifications

Regular workshop support is provided along with individual support for students to develop their portfolio evidence.

How will I study?

Learning takes place through a variety of teaching methods e.g. teacher led sessions, role play and group work. Individual projects and assignments are produced involving the students own research and so students are expected to work on their own account.

How is the course examined?

By portfolio assignment, which is sampled by the exam board’s external verifier. Homework and class activities are assessed throughout the course. This is a credit-based qualification (QCF), completed through a number of portfolio units including:

• Investigating Rights and Responsibilities at Work

• Planning for progression

• Community Project

• Rights, responsibilities and citizenship

• Candidate project

• IT specific skills (e.g. digital design, use of software)

In addition, you will be able to do some additional work specific to ICT to prepare you for progression to this area.

The course includes a National Citizen Service residential and social action project which all learners are required to participate in.

 

Where next?

Upon satisfactory completion of this course, students can progress to level 2 ICT.

What does the course combine well with?

Students studying this course have the opportunity of progressing with other Level 1 courses available in the college.
