ICT & Business

What makes us passionate about our subject? (Intent)

Digital skills are the tools which enable people to create, communicate and solve problems which they would not otherwise be able to do.  They allow students to innovate, gain confidence and build strategies for creativity and problem solving that can be applied to many aspects of life.  We consider these skills to be the pathway to a wide range of life chances, careers and essential to living in a digital economy.

What do our students gain by studying our subject? (Impact)

Our aim is to provide every student with a grounding in the digital skills they will need both during their education and in later life.  As the technology is continually updating, we want to emphasise a resilient flexible approach which includes strategies that will enable them to extend and update those skills in the future.

For those who want to study further we want to grow students’ knowledge of how technology is created and the appreciation they have for solving problems.  We want to help students to further develop their creative skills enabling them to communicate effectively in a digital world.
