Level 1/2 Award Information Technology (IT)

  • Teaching from: September 2017
  • Exams from: June 2019
  • Specification code: 3735
  • QAN code: 603/0507/1

Our new Level 1/2 Award in IT is designed around the three occupational areas in which research has shown the greatest skills gaps:

  • creative (interactive entertainment products and websites)
  • data management (spreadsheets and databases)
  • technical (networking/building/configuring a PC).

Learners will have the opportunity to put their knowledge into practice through a combination of real-life case studies, practical tasks and theoretical study.

Although this qualification won’t be included in performance tables for 2019, we’re offering these Level 1/2 Awards to schools and colleges as we believe they are valuable qualifications for practical learners.
