New video outlines digital skills focus in CCEA A Level Digital Technology

CCEA has developed a short video and Q&A resource to tell the story about our new innovative A Level Digital Technology. The revised qualification replaces A Level ICT and will develop strong digital skills to prepare today’s learners for careers in tomorrow’s digital world. Take a look at the new video.

The video shows CCEA Subject Officer for Digital Technology, Michael McEnery, explaining why we’ve updated ICT to Digital Technology and takes viewers through some exciting developments including digital skills and new support resources. Our Q&A article reveals more details about the strategic change and an update on GCSE Digital Technology for first teaching September 2017.

A Level Digital Technology is part of a broader Digital Skills roadmap established by CCEA – a strategy that includes digital skills at the primary school level - to develop relevant digital skills amongst the current and future generations. This was most recently recognised with a major O2 Digital Skills award for our Digital Curriculum & Qualifications Framework.
