Computer Science is designed to give greater flexibility both to teachers and to learners. It is envisaged that learners will use the skills and knowledge of computer science acquired through this course in one of three ways to provide a general understanding and perspective of the development of computer technology and systems, which will inform their decisions and support their participation in an increasingly technologically dependent society. The course provides the necessary skills and knowledge to seek employment in areas that use computer science. It also develops their knowledge and understanding of computer science through entry to higher education, where this qualification will provide a useful foundation for further study of computer science or more specialist aspects of computer science.
