Age Group

This Level is to introduce students aged between 9 and 12 to intermediate ICT skills.

The International Dimension

Cambridge ICT Starters correlates to the UK National Curriculum. It provides a gateway for students to progress to higher ICT qualification levels equivalent to UK IGCSE / O-Level or GCE A-Level set according to the UK National Curriculum. The learning objectives of the Starter syllabus also meet the Texas technology standards at Elementary and Middle School level (Texas' technology standards are followed by the whole of the US). Therefore, students can be assessed reliably against performance standards set in an international context, which is an advantage when applying for schools placement, encourages the students to obtain wider ICT skills, and last but not the least, strengthens the students' confidence.
