Computing and Digital Technology
Welcome to the Computing and Digital Technology Faculty Homepage. We offer two courses, AS/A-Level Computing and BTEC (Applied) IT
The ICT and Computing Department at Radyr is highly innovative and creative. Our students reap the benefits of staff with over 25 years relevant commercial experience. We are passionate about our subject and strive to be at the very cutting edge of new technology.
Computers are widely used in all aspects of government, business, industry, education, leisure and the home. In this increasingly technological age, a study of Computing, and particularly how computers are used in the solution of a variety of problems, is not only valuable to the students themselves but also essential to the future well-being of the country.
Students are encouraged to develop a broad range of skills and knowledge of computing as a basis for progression into further learning, including progression from AS to A2, and/or employment in computing-related fields.
