Why study BTEC Information Technology?

This qualification is for students who are interested in creating IT systems to manage and share information alongside other subject, with a view to progressing to a wide range of higher education courses, not necessarily in IT. There is a high percentage of internally assessed coursework compared to external assessments, which may appeal to those students who prefer a more continuous approach to assessment. You will study four units, and through these will develop an understanding of the features, role and development of information technology which dominates today’s digital world.
