From September 2012 Y7 timetable time is reduced, but with greater focus on programming via Scratch. Y8 time remains the same but with a complete switch to a solely Multimedia-based scheme. Y9 will have to start a core ICT GCSE a year early, with the opening unit still to be decided, but it will need to be groovy to keep their interest. Y10 core will be most problematic, with insufficient glh time to complete a DfE-approved GCSE course. Y10 ICT option course will probably move towards different units if possible, maybe more programming based if staff skills can be updated in time. Y11 will continue existing courses. For 2013-14, Y9 may have a range of core units offered on a pick'n'mix basis, and Y10 option may become Computer Studies rather than iCT. In short, a transitional year ahead.
