Entry Requirements

The Isle of Wight College has standard entry requirements for full-time college courses, depending on the level of the course to be studied.

There may be additional entry requirements for a small number of specialist courses. If this course is one of these specialist courses, additional entry requirements will be stated below.


Minimum of 3 GCSEs grade 3/D or above including Maths and English language.

Progressing students may require a minimum of Level 1 qualification in your chosen subject at Merit or above and English language and Maths at Level 1.


The course is focussed on providing essential skills to ensure Readiness for the Workplace, and progression to higher levels of study. It has been endorsed by the Island’s Digital Island programme as part of their key priorities.

The course is structured around a set of project modules aimed at providing core knowledge and skills desired by employers.


The programme places a heavy emphasis on you getting the skills that you will need when you enter employment.

Preparatory Modules

These short modules are internally assessed and are designed to allow students to integrate into the Computing community. The outcomes of these units will be an important factor when progression options are considered.


01 Fundamentals of Digital Technologies and System Fundamentals
02 Principles of Games Design and Development
03 Cyber Security

Students will be entered for the Gateway Certificate in Digital and Creative Industries LV 2 with potential grades of Pass, Merit, and Distinction. It has an equivalent value to a full GCSE qualification.

Qualification Modules


01 Preparing to work in the Creative and Digital Industries
02 3d Modelling
03 Website design and development


Provision can be made within the program to allow for work experience for all learners. This placement will be arranged by the learners and will not have to be within an IT environment specifically.



This course is offered in conjunction with Functional Skills and GCSEs where required. These qualifications aim to develop skills valued by employers.


This qualification is based around academic (written) and practical tasks, and will involve significant hands on experience in the college’s well equipped hardware and networking labs.


This course can lead to entry to a level 3 programme of study, and may be of particular value in preparation for completion of an Apprenticeship programme.


All Study Programmes for 16-19 year olds at The Isle of Wight College are designed to include:

  • Work experience which is effective, relevant, and useful and takes place with an external employer, external to the place where you study, where you can experience the real demands of work
  • English and maths, where students have not yet achieved a GCSE grade A*- C in these subjects by age 16
  • Non-qualification activity, such as tutorials and work-related learning, to help further develop the personal skills relevant to your progression goals
  • A vocational experience which will form the substantial part of the programme

These four elements of the programme should combine to provide stretch and challenge for you helping to prepare you for progression to employment or further study.
