Digi Award is our highest level Computing programme for Secondary school learners and is included in the UK Regulated Qualifications Framework at Level 2 (the same level as all IGCSE qualifications).
The Digi Award programme fully consolidates students’ computational thinking, online safety, digital literacy and coding skills and lessons provide innovative projects where students practice the Computing skills and techniques required for success in the modern world, further vocational or academic study. New topics are introduced for this final secondary school programme and students’ coding skills are strengthened with more advanced Python lessons as well as lessons providing an introduction to Java, the most popular programming language globally.
The NCC Education Level 2 Award in Computing syllabus and assessment is suitable for candidates aged 14–16 (at Key Stage 4 of the English national curriculum) as well as older (including adult) learners.
It is expected that candidates who are non-native English speakers are able to cope with the demands of preparing for and taking the NCC Education Level 2 Award in Computing assessment in English.
