Why AQA Computer Science and IT?

We offer a variety of Computer Science and IT qualifications for a wide range of abilities. Students can learn valuable skills and prepare for the workplace with our Functional Skills, Technical Award, GCSE and A-level qualifications.

Textbooks (print and digital)


We're collaborating closely with publishers to ensure that you have textbooks to support you and your students with the new GCSE Computer Science and AS and A-level Computer Science specifications. Textbooks for our Technical Award Information Technology will be available from spring/summer 2017.

Once the books have completed the AQA approval processes they will be badged ‘AQA approved’.
