Changes To ICT At The Key
As of this term, pupils at The Key have the opportunity to study towards a Functional Skills qualification in ICT. The aim is to promote a practical understanding of the key skills required when using some of the most important and common software found both at school and in the workplace, such as Word, Powerpoint and Excel.
As with all Functional Skills qualifications, the online ICT exam, completed here at The Key, can be assessed at both Level 1 (equivalent to GCSE grades 1-3) and Level 2 (equivalent to grades 4+). These qualifications are recognised as appropriate proof of pupils' ability by colleges and when applying for an apprenticeship, which makes them an extremely useful qualification for all pupils to achieve.
