The KS4 program has varied depending on the needs of our students. At present pupils work towards the CiDA Level 1 which aims to equip pupils with the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to create effective digital products. As well as this, it gives them a broad and solid foundation for further study of other aspects of creative computing, such as: graphic and web design, computer games design and interactive media.
Currently, the Level 1 qualification contains two units of coursework:
Unit 1: Developing Web Products.
Unit 4: Game making.
Unit 1 aims to give pupils the skills needed to produce attention grabbing web products using web authoring software, multimedia assets and navigation features. In Unit 4, pupils learn about different types of computer games, investigate what makes a game successful and learn how to design, program and create great games for others to play.
