In year 12 pupils undertake lessons designed to increase their knowledge of the main aspects of IT and how it is used in different sectors of industry. This is designed to give them a broad knowledge of the impact of IT and what factors affect choice when implementing new systems. Case studies will be used while improving exam questioning technique for a written exam in the summer of year 12. There are a number of practical based units relating to databases, websites and social media.
Over the two years of study, pupils develop their understanding of various business concepts. These include personal and business Finances, Exploring business, developing a marketing campaign and investing customer service. These are assessed by a combination of a written exam, time controlled assessment and assignments.
