    Key Learnings

    Modules

    Programming involves describing processes and procedures which are derived from algorithms. The ability to program is what sets apart a developer and an end user. Typically, the role of the developer is to instruct a device (such as a computer) to carry out instructions; the instructions are known as source code and are written in a language that is converted into something the device can understand. The device executes the instructions it is given. This module introduces students to the core concepts of programming with an introduction to algorithms and the characteristics of programming paradigms. Among the topics included in this unit are the introduction to algorithms, procedural, object-orientated & event-driven programming, security considerations, the integrated development environment, and the debugging process.

    Learning Outcomes
    • Define basic algorithms to carry out an operation and outline the process of programming an application.
    • Explain the characteristics of procedural, object-orientated, and event-driven programming.
    • Implement basic algorithms in code using an IDE.
    • Determine the debugging process and explain the importance of a coding standard.

    Computer networks are the driving force behind the evolution of computer systems and allow users to access data, hardware and services regardless of their location. Being knowledgeable about the underlying principles of networking is of vital importance to all IT professionals. Networking is an environment that is increasingly complex and under continuous development. This module aims to provide students with wider background knowledge of computer networking essentials, how they operate, protocols, standards, security considerations and the prototypes associated with a range of networking technologies.

    Learning Outcomes
    • Examine networking principles and their protocols.
    • Explain networking devices and operations.
    • Design efficient networked systems.
    • Implement and diagnose networked systems.

    This module is assessed by a Pearson-set assignment. The project brief will be set by the centre, based on a theme provided by Pearson (this will change annually). The theme and chosen project within the theme will enable students to explore and examine a relevant and current topical aspect of computing in the context of a business environment. The aim of the module is to offer students an opportunity to demonstrate the skills required for managing and implementing a project. They will undertake independent research and investigation for carrying out and executing a computing project which meets appropriate aims and objectives.

    Learning Outcomes
    • Establish project aims, objectives and timeframes based on the chosen theme.
    • Conduct small-scale research, information gathering and data collection to generate knowledge to support the project.
    • Present the project and communicate appropriate recommendations based on meaningful conclusions drawn from the evidence findings and/or analysis.
    • Reflect on the value gained from conducting the project and its usefulness to support sustainable organisational performance
    • Determine the debugging process and explain the importance of a coding standard.
