Preparing for Study: IT & Computing

IT and computing students

If you are in Year 11 and starting to think about preparing for your IT & Computing course at Wyke, there are a variety of free online resources available that we would recommend using; The Open University and Future Learn.

Both websites offer free short courses covering a wide range of fascinating and current topics including:

  • E-government
  • IT in everyday life
  • Coding
  • Approaches to software development
  • Cyber security

These are really useful for doing some deeper reading, getting a head start on your subject along with exploring university/career pathways and identifying how your subjects relate to everyday life and society.

They also provide a great way to discover potential EPQ topics if you are looking to include this course in your study programme.
