Endorsed by the

British Computer Society

a course designed by teachers for teachers.

The flexible, modular approach of the Informatics Award enables pupils to LEARN and teachers to TRACK and TEACH the use of COMPUTING SKILLS throughout the secondary computing curriculum.

The carefully written resources (files, videos and instructions) allow pupils to gain access to and work through the National Curriciulum for Computing at their own pace. The unique marking technology gives formative feedback and the e-portal tracks progress and how essential the skills acquired are being used in everyday situations.


✔ Modular curriculum design

✔ Self marking technology

The course has four Core Modules:

  • Device Management
  • Software Fundamentals
  • E-safety and Cyber Security, and
  • Computational Thinking and Coding.
With these four modules young people will be prepared for life beyond school whether that be at University or in the workplace as they cover the functional skills required in our digital world. These modules are intended to be delivered at a time when the students need the skills. For example, device set-up and maintenance are useful tasks to undertake when learners are beginning to use their own devices in lessons.


We recognise that in a modern world people diversify and require different sets of advanced digital skills. Our additional modules in Control and Programming, Mobile App Design, Digital Humanities and the Internet, Business Entrepreneurship and Creative Technologies allow learners to develop beyond the basic.

At a time when many schools are returning to a traditional 3 A Level approach there is now space in the curriculum in years 12 and 13 to teach these skills and prepare our learners to be the digital experts of the future.
