We have received feedback from the DfE about the Cambridge National Certificate in ICT and the 2019 performance tables for technical and vocational qualifications. As a result of their review of ICT Technical Awards, the DfE have asked for some changes to be made, prior to inclusion in the 2019 performance tables. Over the next month we will be continuing our discussions with the DfE, whilst working on the changes and bringing forward some of our ICT development plans.
We want to ensure that this qualification is right for you and your students, ready for September 2017 teaching. Over the next couple of weeks we will be busy working with schools and colleges as well as employers for feedback on the changes we are making.
Updated 2019 performance tables will be released by the DfE in May 2017 and again in August 2017. We recognise how important it is for you to plan ahead and we will keep you updated with the latest news relating to this qualification.
This is a vocationally-related qualification that takes an engaging, practical and inspiring approach to learning and assessment. The everyday use of ICT, from PCs to smartphones, now impacts all of our lives. This new Cambridge Nationals in ICT reflects this and provides students with a solid understanding of the subject which they can use in their working lives. Three themes are covered: business information systems, creative and technical.
We’ve put together this guide to give additional guidance on how internal standardisation may be approached. These guidelines must be used in conjunction with the Centre Handbook and Admin Guide relevant to the qualification you are delivering.
The teaching and learning resources on this page must not be used for summative assessment purposes. As part of our teaching we expect support to be given to your learners; such support is not permissible for summative assessment and is likely to be considered malpractice.
