This course is aimed at students aged 14 – 16 years who have an interest in gaming and wish to develop their computer skills. It will provide learners with a good insight into the skills and knowledge they require, not only for working in computer games development, but generic, transferable skills that all employers would welcome, such as reflective practice, self-assessment, target setting, receiving and giving feedback and presentation skills.
The assured courses are studied across two years and were developed by King’s InterHigh. The learner will need to complete two modules in year 10 and two modules in year 11. The certificate consists of 4 mandatory modules. The learner must PASS all four modules to receive the full assured course certificate and digital credential, endorsed by City and Guilds. Assessment is entirely through coursework and is made on a pass/fail basis. The full assured course certificates will be issued to any eligible students by the end of the summer term in year 11.
This assured course is written across two years and involves 120 hours of guided learning time. Successful completion of all units leads to the award of a course certificate and digital credential. Those completing less than the full course will be eligible for King’s InterHigh unit certification for each unit of work completed.
To pass each module, the learner needs to have enough work submitted to demonstrate passing grades in each Assessment Objective (AOs) shown on the assessment rubric and gain ≥6/12 overall.
• Students need more than 50% (≥6/12) in each module to pass that module.
• Students must gain at least 1 point for each Assessment Objective (AO).
• Zero points (N) in any AO will fail that module even if the student has gained ≥6/12 overall.
• N – FAIL I – INCOMPLETE P – PASS P+ – PASS PLUS
If the learner has not passed all four modules, they should still be eligible to receive an King’s InterHigh Certificate, stating which modules they completed successfully. It will not be the full assured course certificate.
Any King’s InterHigh certificates (that detail modules passed) will be issued to any eligible students by the end of the summer term.
If the learner wishes to gain the full assured course certificate, then they will need to work independently and in their own time to work on missing modules. The teacher will not be able to support students after the end of module 4. During module 4, the teacher will need to be focused on students working towards module 4.
Assessment is entirely through coursework and is made on a pass/fail basis.
