  • the capacity for thinking creatively, innovatively, analytically, logically and critically;
  • an understanding of the organisation of computer systems including software, hardware, data, communications and people;
  • the ability to apply skills, knowledge and understanding of computing, including programming, to solve problems; project and time management skills;
  • the capacity to see relationships between different aspects of the subject and perceive their field of study in a broader perspective;
  • an understanding of the consequences of uses of computing, including social, legal, ethical and other issues;
  • an awareness of emerging technologies and their potential impact on society.

Further Study: Pupils can continue their education by completing a degree in computing or use their skills in other fields.
