SPECIFICATION:

The qualification at Level 2 has two assessment components both of which cover the full content of the qualifications.

  1. Coursework assessed in terms of competence in practical areas where knowledge and understanding can be applied in real and motivating contexts.
  2. An externally set and externally marked examination to assess knowledge and understanding that underpins user competence.

A minimum of 17 credits is needed for the qualification at Level 2 with at least 9 credits including the Improving Productivity using IT (IPU) unit (4 credits) at Level 2 and IT Security at Level 1 (1 credit). Since some credit can be carried forward from Level 1, smoother progression is possible. The IPU unit together with IT Security and underlying knowledge and understanding common to all units is the basis for the synoptic externally set and marked examination for Level 2.

It has grading across 4 levels from A*-C with A* the highest grade equating to 80%+ of the available marks and grade C equating to a minimum of 50%.
The qualification is based on the National Occupational Standards (NOS) for IT Users developed by the Sector Skills Council for IT and Business together with employers and IT subject specialists
