This unit provides you with the opportunity to complete a substantial project involving the productionof an ICT-related system over an extended period of time. In so doing, you will enhance your transferable practical skills. It is important for your project to have a level of complexity and demandappropriate to the second year of an A Level. Regular involvement of the end-user is essential to thesuccess of the project. You will need to provide evidence to verify this.

The following may help to illustrate the range of possible projects that could be undertaken. Theyshow how you might be able to work on an

individual

 or

group

 project whilst still producing an

individual project report

 that has your

own work clearly identified

.

You may, for example, produce…

a software solution such as an e-commerce or multimedia system

a training system, including training materials for a client. This could, for example, be for acourse for someone working from home

a user support system, such as for a user help desk in a company or school/college, or a faultlogging system

a system for ensuring the security of an organisation’s ICT systems. An idea here would be toformulate a policy to specify appropriate use of a company or a school’s/college’s laptopcomputers and other mobile devices, or a database to record usage

a system for communication within an organisation: for example, for how schools could usetechnology to communicate with students within the school or a communal diary system

a system for evaluating new software to be purchased or for a new system to be installed,including hardware, software, communications, consumables and services

a backup and recovery system and a disaster recovery plan for an organisation

a system for managing relationships with customers

Working together (with clients and other students)

It is intended that you will become involved in real situations in organisations where you can applyyour skills, knowledge and understanding of ICT to solve problems for a client. An organisation isdefined as any group of people who use ICT to achieve their aims and objectives. Examples of anorganisation include a local company, a retailer, a school or college, a charity, a club or society, or justa group of people coming together to organise an event.

It is quite acceptable for you to work in a team for the same client, if that is what is required for thework being undertaken.

The team could consist of two or more students working with one or more members from the clientorganisation. This approach is encouraged if it allows students to become involved in larger morerealistic projects where each student can work on part of a system.

Using software

The project should involve you using applications software for a variety of purposes and should alsointroduce you to the fundamentals of project management.

You will be expected to make full use of the functionality available in word processing software for the production of the project report and, if required, to enable collaborative working.

The project should encourage you to think creatively, innovatively, analytically, logically and criticallyas you consider and suggest alternative approaches, investigate and discuss possibilities, andrecommend actions to be taken.

You will produce a project report that will be assessed internally by the school, to the criteria providedin this specification. The school’s assessment will then be moderated by AQA. For this reason,although collaborative working is encouraged, it is imperative that assessors are able to identify your own contribution, and you must produce your own project report.
