Firstly my huge apologies as I am a non ICT specialist who is going to have to try to become one before September! I work in a small unit for vulnerable students, completely detatched from any secondary school. We have up to 20 students with a massive ability range. They come to us anywhere between the start of Yr10 and January of their Yr11 year, often with no history of previous ICT work. After a successful Ofsted inspection one of the centre's priorites for next year is the development of ICT. As I am the 'most able' to do it it is now my job to try and work out what the heck I am going to do. Currently we offer Entry Level, Functional Skills and GCSE s/c with either WJEC or AQA respectively - courses aimed to individual students' ability. The students do not have a set t/table so I may see them for 45 mins a week or 2 hours a week but nothing consistent. I have been told that every student needs to achieve at the highest possible level. Ok, so any advice where to start? Our students are not able to sit and do copious amounts of work independently but do like little tick boxes to mark off along the way to show the steps they have made in their progress. Are there any NC legalities - what is the minimum they should be doing etc ? Any help and advice greatly appreciated.
