Designed as a one-year, full-time course, covering the fundamentals of Information Technology, which supports progression to a work-based learning qualification in the IT sector, or a further year of study at Level 4. The content of these qualifications has been designed to support progression to particular roles in information systems, either directly into entry-level positions linked to these occupational areas or, more likely, via particular higher-education routes in these specific areas. The qualification content has been designed in consultation with employers, professional bodies, and higher-education providers to ensure that the material is appropriate for the progression routes identified. All learners will be required to take mandatory content that is directly relevant to progression routes in all of the designated areas.
