ICT Level 1 Course for lower ability - Help please

Discussion in 'Computing and ICT' started by KaySawbridge, Mar 8, 2011.

  1. We are currently teaching the OCR Nationals Level 2 in ICT to most students and the Functional Skills entry level to the really weak students. Neither of these qualifications seem to meet the needs of our lower ability students whose work is often more like Level 1. I am looking for a Level 1 ICT course for next year's Year 10s (OCR Nationals Level 1 course seems to have finished). I have searched the exam boards for an alternative but to no avail. I am looking for a course which will keep their attention and hopefully gain them a GCSE or half GCSE even at d-g grade.
    Any advice or help gratefully received
