OCR is enhancing the Cambridge Technicals in IT qualifications with the addition of optional units, as part of our planned expansion of the range.
The new units are available at both Level 2 and Level 3, and include animation techniques, computer game design, database systems and web server scripting, to name but a few.
The new Level 3 options for IT also include two units from our Cambridge Technicals in Business, giving learners the opportunity for cross-curricular work.
In addition to the growing choice of units, OCR has also introduced three pathway options for the IT qualification. These give learners the opportunity to specialise in their chosen career path through taking a combination of selected units. The pathways available are Business User, Creative and Technical. Recognition of this focus will be shown on learners’ certificates. Full details of the new pathways can be found in section 3 of the centre handbooks, available at the following links: Level 2 and Level 3.
OCR wishes to expand the Cambridge Technicals range by developing further units and resources that are relevant to your needs. If you are interested in working with us to achieve this, we’d like to hear from you at OCRStrategyTeam@ocr.org.uk.
As well as Cambridge Technicals in IT, the Cambridge Technicals range offers qualifications in Art and Design, Business, Health and Social Care, Media, and Sport. Developed in partnership with employers, industry specialists and teachers, success in Cambridge Technicals give learners the experience and skills to progress into employment or higher education.
