General Certificate of Secondary Education (Level 2)
GCSEs are the qualifications that students gain at the end of compulsory education in the United Kingdom. I studied a range of academic GCSE subjects and had particular interests in ICT and Geography. I began studying them in September 2003 and completed the award by June 2005.
BTEC National Diploma IT Practitioners (Level 3)
The BTEC National is a fully recognised vocational course studied over two years in further education college. I particularly enjoyed the BTEC National IT Practitioners course as all the units were related to computing. I began studying the course in September 2005 and completed the award by June 2007.
BSc(Hons) Web Technology (Level 4-6)
The Bachelor of Science (Honours) award is a Bachelor’s degree up to level 6 in the United Kingdom’s higher education framework. This BSc(Hons) programme in Web Technology explored the radical changes in website revolution, the security factors, business processing, coding websites, working with databases and developing multimedia. I began studying the course in September 2007 and completed the award by May 2010.
Teacher Training (Level 4-5)
Teaching qualifications are required in order to teach in the United Kingdom. Within further education, lectures have to study PTTLS (Preparing to Teach within Lifelong Learning) and then move on to complete DTLLS (Diploma to Teach within Lifelong Learning). These courses have been beneficial and taught me how to plan lessons, manage challenging behaviour and gain an understanding of legislation. I began studying teacher training in September 2011 and completed in June 2013.
