"We believe these new and innovative qualifications provide the most inclusive and cost-effective qualifications available for the new Computing curriculum emphasis while preserving the necessary rigour for stretching the highest attaining candidates. In addition, there is a clear intention to reduce the bureaucratic overhead on teachers while preserving the benefits of coursework for motivating learners and dealing validly with recognition of practical competence in what are essentially practical and vocational skills and activities. We have demonstrated that we can provide Level 1 and Level 2 qualifications that are accessible to all learners while still differentiating the top performing students. This enables a clear progression route for the weakest mainstream learners through to identifying those that are likely to be successful in academic A levels."
