At Coleg y Cymoedd we would encourage you to do the very best that you can in your assessments. The better your grades the more options you will have and may result in you gaining entry onto a higher-level course.
Assessment is carried out by coursework activities within the units studied. These typically will involve students applying skills and knowledge taught to complete coursework objectives. For example, in Web Development you will be taught how to create a modern interactive web site, you will then be expected to create a web site based on a vocational based brief issued by a client. Some units have small in class tests such as maths and the work placement unit, in year 2, will require a specific number of hours to be completed with an employer.
Upon completing foundation degree ICT, you will have a level 5 University qualification and be well equipped to go straight into employment within the computing sector. Former students have gained employment with companies like British Airways, CGI and Civil Service. Learners have also gained employment with employers where they completed their work placement unit.
