ICT Starters: How much class time is recommended?
There is no easy answer to this question. The reason Cambridge do not prescribe this, is that candidates may be different ages or levels and are able to devote varying amounts of time to the course. We recommend 1–2 years for a full level. The best approach is to look at the modules yourself and decide how long you think it would take for your candidates to be able to confidently meet the learning objectives.
ICT Starters: Can assessments be carried out in lesson time?
The assessment tests must be completed under supervised and controlled examination conditions as detailed in the syllabus. It is possible to carry out the assessments during normal timetabled periods during the normal working day, as long as all procedures are followed during the assessments. Candidates are not permitted access to their own files. No tuition can be given after the candidate has commenced the assessment.
