European Computer Driving Licence
We are in the process of introducing an ICT course that will be an additional qualification for key stage 4 students. It is available for 2017 and 2018 only. It is called the European Computer Driving Licence (ECDL) and is accredited and examined by the British Computing Society (BCS), a chartered institute for IT. ECDL is one of the leading international computer skills qualifications and is the benchmark for digital literacy in educational systems around the globe.
We hope to offer this course to all Year 10 students through a rolling programme. For this to happen, your daughter will be withdrawn from Core PE for approximately 12 sessions when she will study the ECDL IT programme and take a series of assessments. The final qualification will be graded with a distinction, merit or pass which is equivalent to A* to C.
If you do not want your daughter to be withdrawn from Core PE for twelve sessions to gain this additional qualification, please let us know. Dr. Mubeezi is leading on this initiative, please do not hesitate to contact him should you have any questions or concerns.
