    Hi All

    I have been asked to research all of the vocational course options for ICT and Computing. We are ideally looking for something that isn't coursework based but I think that leaves it extremely limited.

    The ones I have currently thought about, include:
    * Microsoft Office Specialist Qualifications
    * ECDL Level 2

    Does anyone know of others?

    Does it need to be level 2? There's also OCR Entry-Level Computing.

    Functional Skills also still exists, of course, although no school wants to do it because it doesn't count in the league tables. It still has points for the student, though.

    HI Pickles, we used to do the ECDL but switched to the City and Guilds ITQ for a couple of years but it was not successful so we've gone to MOS which is better. If you want more ifo about it just let me know.
