As previously shared, following the DfE’s review of ICT Technical Awards OCR were asked to make some changes to the Cambridge National Certificate in ICT, prior to inclusion in the 2019 KS4 performance tables.
We took this opportunity to consult widely with schools, employers and other qualification users, to ensure that our Cambridge National would continue to meet your and your students’ needs, ready for September 2017 teaching.
The overwhelming outcome of this consultation was that we should bring forward redevelopment plans and launch our brand new qualification, aligning it to the latest Key Stage 4 Curriculum and innovative use of technology to best equip your students for their future.
We are delighted to announce the launch of the Cambridge National Certificate in Information Technologies.

The current Cambridge National Certificate in ICT continues to be eligible for reporting on the DfE’s 2018 KS4 performance tables.
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.
