QCA has published standards, guidance and the draft ICT Skills for Life curriculum

‘QCA has developed ICT Skills for Life standards, together with guidance and examples.

The standards follow the same format as the national standards for adult literacy and numeracy and relate directly to the key skills in information technology. They also match the substance and the intention of both the national curriculum for ICT capability and the national occupational standards for ICT users.

 

The standards cover ICT Skills for Life at Levels 1 and 2, with steps towards Level 1 represented by standards for Entry levels 1 to 3.

 

ICT Skill for Life curriculum document

The ICT Skill for Life Curriculum document has been developed by the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA) for the Department for Education and Skills. The publication has been developed from the standards for ICT Skill for Life and will be of use to teachers and tutors, awarding bodies and writers of learning materials.

The document is in draft format to allow users to provide feedback. Much of the feedback will come from the ICT Skills for Life Pathfinders project. If you would like to contribute comments, please email them to ICTSfL@qca.org.uk.

 

CTAD will lead on developing materials and staff training as part of the ICT Skills for LIfe Pathfinder project which will run until Autumn 2007.
