Why should I enrol?
Tracking system calculates certification type, level & grades automatically per student for the OCR ICT Cambridge Nationals to save time calculating results*. With the blank curriculum timeline, it can provide staff & students a way to optimise time & energy to the best result.

Stuart McLaughlin The Brittons Academy Essex "Shaf Cangil came as a consultant to The Brittons Academy when we desperately needed someone to organise our Year 11 students to finish off their coursework for the OCR National ICT qualification. She applied her management system to identify each students individual needs & then provided staff with first class support. Her technique enabled staff to map and monitor every student's work against the specification & then direct them to what was needed to complete the course. Thanks to her support, a significant number have achieved a pass or merit on the full course."
