ICT

Examination Board: OCR

Course Title:  OCR Level 1/2 Cambridge National Certificate in Information Technologies

Why should I choose to study this course?

The collection and communication of data and storing of data/information happens all around us.

Technology underpins how it’s collected and communicated nearly all of the time. It can be seen in all walks of life, from a wearable fitness tracker recording how many steps you have taken, your mobile phone provider recording your usage to create your bill or an online retailer being able to target you with specific promotions based on your purchase history.

Knowing how and why data is gathered and being able to turn raw data into something meaningful is essential as you moves through education and into employment. To be able to do this you will need to have the confidence to use a range of information technology that is currently available, as well as being adaptable and resilient enough to deal with the rapid advances.

What will I learn?

You will learn what different technologies could be used, why they should use them and how to make best use of them, to gather, store, manipulate and present data; this is known as data management.

Learn about tools and techniques for use in different digital hardware and software technologies, and how these can be integrated to create digital solutions to manage and communicate data and information.  Be taught what data and information are and the legal, ethical and moral considerations when using technology to gather, store and present data and information. How to mitigate the risks of cyber-attacks.  Through this qualification you will be able to select and use the most appropriate technology safely and effectively, to complete a data management task, such as a cable TV provider monitoring customers’ viewing to make recommendations for additional packages in the customer’s subscription. Learn to follow a project life cycle of initiation, planning, execution and evaluation to complete a data management task.

The skills, knowledge and understanding you will develop through this qualification are very relevant to both work and further study.

What will be expected of me?

  • demonstrate a good understanding of the project life cycle including a clear understanding of the interaction and iteration between all of the phases
  • demonstrate a well-considered understanding of how technology can be used to support the project life cycle including the advantages and disadvantages of using information technologies within each phase
  • effectively plan, manipulate, process and communicate data and information through the well-considered selection and the use of ICT tools and techniques to deliver an effective integrated technology-based solution
  • effectively and appropriately mitigate risks when manipulating and processing data and communicating information. This will also include a good understanding of how to mitigate risks when collecting data
  • consistently apply iterative review techniques throughout the different phases of the project life cycle. There will also be an effective final evaluation against the original plan. Both the iterative review and the evaluation will contain well-reasoned judgements and substantiated conclusions.

How will I be assessed?

Assessment is through practical examination and completion of summative projects:-

Unit 1 (R012) - Understanding tools, techniques, methods and processes for technological solutions

 

  • 1 hour 45 minutes written examination
  • OCR-set and marked

 

This will directly assess the outcomes titled as ‘Understand’:

LO1: Understand the tools and techniques that can be used to initiate and plan solutions

LO3: Understand how data and information can be collected, stored and used

LO4: Understand the factors to be considered when collecting and processing data and storing data/information

LO6: Understand the different methods of processing data and presenting information.

Unit 2 (R013) - Developing technological solutions

 

  • 80 marks (120 UMS)
  • An assignment set by OCR, marked by teachers and moderated by OCR
  • The assignment will include a context and set of tasks

 

This will directly assess the outcomes titled as ‘Be able to’:

LO2: To be able to initiate and plan a solution to meet an identified need

LO5: To be able to import and manipulate data to develop a solution to meet an identified need

LO7: To be able to select and present information in the development of the solution to meet an identified need

LO8: To be able to iteratively review and evaluate the development of the solution.

Where will this qualification lead me?

Students will develop skills, knowledge and understanding through this qualification which are relevant to both work and further study. It will support students in a range of subject areas such as A Levels in Business or Geography, or Cambridge Technical in IT or Further Education. It will also support progression into employment through Apprenticeships in areas such as Digital Marketer or Business Administrator.
