KS4 - 1 Period a week for 1 Year - IT Course?

Discussion in 'Computing and ICT' started by baconandegg, May 11, 2012.

  1. Advice needed!

    I'm a HOD and am new to the school. Currently KS4 students opt in to a subject rotation for 1 period a week. They can chose 2 from Citizenship/RS/ICT and complete a short course from Sept - May HT in Yr 10, and May to May Yr 11. The powers that be have stopped the rotation - so May 2012 to May 2013 will be the final rotation. Lessons take place on a Friday afternoon, mixed ability students who have varying degrees of productivity.
    Traditionally IT ran OCR Nationals. When it change to 3 units there was not enough time, so the present cohort have done Functional Skills. This does not count towards the school results so I can't do FS any more. Any suggestions? I could teach Photoshop skills etc, but Friday afternoon motivation may be better if we're working towards something.

    Thanks in advance B&E
  2. Take a look at the new version ECDL, introductory level might suit
