De La Salle pupils continue their ICT development with the new Duke of York iDEA scheme. iDEA is a programme that helps pupils develop digital and enterprise skills.
Through a series of online challenges and events, they can win career-enhancing badges, unlock new opportunities and, ultimately, gain industry recognised awards that help them stand out from the crowd.
For GCSE we are currently delivering OCN NI Level 2 Certificate in Information Technology Applications.
Designed to provide learners with the IT skills required to function successfully in the work and wider environment.
This course is assessed 100% through coursework with no external exam.
POST 16 ICT: De La Salle has been a leading partner with OCR in delivering the Cambridge Tech- nicals to our post 16 pupils with great success. For the past two years 100% of our A level pupils gained an A grade in their A level ICT.
The Cambridge Technicals are vocational qualifications at GCSE and A level for students aged 16+. They’re designed with the workplace in mind. We intend expand our delivery to diploma level in the coming year.
It is also our goal to provide higher level ICT apprenticeships in conjunction with local business. Higher Level Apprenticeships are designed to help those in work develop higher skill levels, award- ing qualifications equivalent to the first stages of Higher Education.
