“I think it's fair to say that personal computers have become the most empowering tool we've ever created. They're tools of communication, they're tools of creativity, and they can be shaped by their user.”
Bill Gates, Founder, Microsoft
If you are naturally inquisitive, enjoy solving problems and want to explore the really clever tasks which software can perform, then Applied A Level ICT is the course for you. Whatever your chosen career path, an A Level in ICT will be a relevant and valuable qualification.
