All students at Ashley 6th Form are provided with an excellent ICT experience as a result of the ongoing acquisition of new hardware/software, in line with the latest developments in technology.
In Key Stage 5 we aim to build on experiences gained in Key Stage 4, enabling students to further develop their ICT skills and provide opportunities for vocational/work-related learning.
The emphasis is on the continued application and practice of ICT in everyday life. Students will become competent ICT learners by being encouraged to solve problems, design and evaluate and gain skills to successfully prepare them for the world of work.
Students in Key Stage 5 will have the opportunity to use their existing ICT skills and further develop these by studying one of the courses listed below, specific to students’ ability.
