In S1 and S2 pupils are given the opportunity to enhance their ICT skills. These can be applied in Business in S1 where we look at innovation and entrepreneurs as well as how businesses market their goods.  In Computing, students will learn to develop digital solutions in Web Design, Animation as well as basic Computer Programming.  Further study in S2 deals with aspects of business ethics and the impact that businesses have on their environment.

 In S3 pupils can streamline their choice into Administration and IT, Business or Computing. This allows a more in-depth look at the topics introduced in S1 and S2 as well as progressing pupils’ knowledge and skills.

 Throughout S1 to S3 pupils are encouraged to be enterprising and can experience the business curriculum through taking part in national competitions and challenges like Micro Tyco and The Real Business Challenge run by Coca Cola.

 

SeniorPhase

Across the Faculty we offer a range of certificated courses in the Senior Phase in Administration and IT, Business Management and Computing Science. Each of these courses recognises the importance that Business and Computing have on the economy and combine both theoretical and real-life aspects to ensure that our pupils have the necessary knowledge and practical skills that will be of use in both the workplace and in further study of the subjects. Pupils are given the opportunity for study at N4, N5 or Higher level – whichever suits best!

 

The use of technology to be innovative and enterprising underpins all we do to encourage our pupils in the faculty to reach their potential.
