Accredited KS4 ICT courses suitable for a special needs school

    Advice needed please.
    I work in an autistic special school. My students are all statemented special needs kids on the autistic spectrum. Many also have additional needs. Previously, in KS4,
    we successfully used the OCR Nationals ICT Level 2 course with our students who were motivated by the freedom it allowed (in choice of topics) and the clear unambiguous 'Pass, Merit, Distinction' marking scheme. When that course was cancelled we swapped to the OCR Cambridge Nationals ICT (Level 1 & 2) course as it's supposed to cover the full 'range' of our students (A* to G) abilities. The set topics and strict assessed coursework is really demotivating our students who are used to more support and freedom of choice.

    Can anyone please recommend a KS4 accredited ICT course that they have found works with special needs students. Ideally it should be able to cover the whole range of abilities.

    Thank you.
