CCEA qualifications in Digital Technology are available at GCSE and GCE. We also offer a GCE in Software Systems Development.
Digital technology incorporates aspects of computer science and information technology. It explores how we can use technology to create, store, process, analyse and present information in a digital context. This includes computer architecture, networks, web technology, digital media, programming tools and software applications.
Digital technology affects many parts of our lives, from work and travel to entertainment and banking. There is also a growing demand for workers with specialist digital skills. The government estimates that we will need 1.2 million new technical and digitally skilled workers by 2022 to satisfy future skills needs.
We developed our innovative Digital Technology qualifications, alongside GCE Software Systems Development, to help close the digital skills gap by increasing the digital skills of the future workforce.
