Thank you for your continued feedback on our new Cambridge National Certificate in Information Technologies.
As a result of your feedback, we have made some improvements to the teaching content and guidance in the specification and an adjustment to the assessment of the internally assessed unit (R013).
A student can, at your discretion, attempt to improve their internal assessment result after moderation but will need to submit a new task for assessment rather than amend a previously submitted task. Our amended specification includes the full details of this change.
There are no changes to the arrangements for the examined unit. Students will still have the option to resit this once before they complete the qualification.
We will always use the best result from both assessment units to calculate the certification result.
For first teaching in September 2017 and included on the KS4 2019 performance tables.
Cambridge National in Information Technologies has been developed to give students a real understanding of their digital environment, develop key skills, and prepare them for their future use of IT in their chosen careers across a wide range of job roles.
Using real life examples from smart watches and music apps to cybersecurity and fake news, your students will be taken on a journey of discovery on how information technologies are applied, and revealing to them the extent to which digital footprints impact their everyday lives.
