GCSE ICT 2010 Tea Time Briefings

Tea time briefings are short online sessions that help us to offer solutions to common issues. We provide free online sessions just after school where you can sit with a cup of coffee and watch and listen to help inform your delivery.

We have just released details of two more Tea Time briefings. These free, online events have proved very popular so far. They give you the opportunity to sit down with a cup of coffee and take in some useful information to aid your delivery of the new GCSE. The next two sessions are entitled...

GCSE ICT 10 - Making Movies. A beginners guide to creating small projects using Windows Movie Maker, to support your creation of a "Movie" as part of the Unit 2 controlled assessment.

GCSE ICT 10 - What about the Admin? Your guide to the administrative processes vital to the smooth delivery of the new GCSE ICT 2010. Covering topics such as entries, single resit rule, terminal assessment rule and controlled assessment.

This events have just been confirmed and further details and instructions on how to book will appear on the "What's On" section of our ICT Homepage in the next few hours.

Parents play a major role in guiding young students’ choices when they leave school. This guide has been produced to provide parents with the information they need on BTEC qualifications. This BTEC Parents Guide may help when discussing the vocational pathway with the parents of your learners.
