Key Stage 4

At Key Stage 4, students study the BTEC First in Information and Creative Technology worth 1 GCSE. Students learn about the online world and technology systems, develop the skills to create and work with digital assets, including audio and graphics, and have the opportunity to work with other software including creating their own digital portfolio to showcase their work and skills, all of which are essential and valuable skills in the business world.

Students will be able to demonstrate their creative flair by combining multimedia components to create a vibrant, energetic or stimulating webpage, or interactive product.

Interactive products are used widely in everyday life; from visiting a website, ordering online products, using mobile phone applications, viewing a presentation, e-learning products or playing computer games.  They will learn skills that would be expected in creative media industries such as advertising, music and online marketing.
