GCE Applied ICT Accreditation

I have had some recent enquires about the availability of GCE Applied ICT. I can confirm that this course is accredited until 2013. This means that the last certification will be in the Summer of 2014. Any centres offering GCE Applied ICT can recruit students on a two year program in September 2011 and September 2012. We are currently considering options for A Level ICT and I will provide you with further updates on this as they become available.

Dear Gareth,

My name is Stuart Burke, I teach ICT at the Bedford Sixth Form and have attempted to buy the Teacher's CD ROM Site licence for your course, only to be informed that they are no longer available.

Could you let me know how you are happy to let people buy into your course when it appears that you are closing up shop on the course

Thank You
