School Curriculum

Competence with computers is now an essential skill for anyone at school, college, university, or employed in a modern workplace. Users that can navigate computers with confidence can use a PC to communicate effectively and can gain access to an almost infinite wealth of resources via the internet.


The ITQ is the world’s number one qualification for end users; this certification is recognised and valued as a proof of competence in IT in workplaces around the globe.


ITQ programmes have been delivered to over 13 million people, in 41 languages, across 148 countries - over 2.5 million people have taken an ITQ course in the UK alone.


Why should I study this course?

The ITQ is one of the most cost and time effective ways to gain a GCSE grade.
