This course is open to learners of all ages looking for an internationally recognised ICT qualification. All course materials are pre-recorded and studied at your own pace with access to help from specialist ICT / Computing tutors through our online portal. If you are looking to complete the full Level 2 ICDL course in a single year, this is the option for you. Alternatively, it is possible to achieve Level 2 over two years by completing the Level 1 Award followed by Level 2 “extra”. Completing a Level 2 ICDL certificate is equivalent to GCSE at a higher pass (4 – 9). Although these are not used for school league tables, they are studied within schools where iGCSEs and equivalent level 2 courses are offered and a preferred option for professional development in the workplace.
As this course uses a licence to the Official BCS study material, please allow up to 2 – 5 working days for course access. Once you have accessed your course, we are unable to provide a refund for this unit.
