Curriculum Statement

"Technology can be the 'wings' that will allow the educational world to fly futher and faster than ever before"

The English curriculum at BBAB is designed to support all students in becoming confident and effective communicators.  We teach the knowledge and skills necessary for our students to develop into critical thinkers who are able to read analytically and articulate ideas effectively, creatively and persuasively in speech and writing. 


The ICT department offers students the skills and knowledge to understand how important ICT Functional Skills is in the modern working world. Everything we do is connected to ICT. To empower students with functional skills using ICT as a powerful skill to be able to function in the world of work. To eventually introduce coding and design into the ICT curriculum (cantered around gaming).


Students will be enrolled on the NCFE Level 1 course and entered for the exams. Lessons will be well planned and considerate of students’ interests. Lessons will be engaging with a focus on taking the formative and eventual summative assessment, followed by the exam/final assessment.


Students will gain confidence in their skills by understanding a full use of Microsoft Office. They will therefor become more employable having gained the Level 1 qualification. Students will be equipped with the knowledge and experience to gain employment in the design, ICT, financial and gaming industries.

The NCFE Functional Skills ICT qualification (Level 1) is designed to give learners the skills to operate confidently, effectively and independently in education, work and everyday life. This is in response to employers’ perceptions that many employees are not achieving a sufficiently firm grounding in ICT basics. Students will use the Microsoft Applications Suite consisting of Word, Excel, Powerpoint and Outlook as well as Google Chrome.

Lesson are offered through engaging lessons which cover the full NCFE Level 1 specification. We also expose students to important topics within ICT such as Cyber Security, Coding, Gaming, AI, Networking and Software Testing.

As a result, we want students at BBA to have confidence in their ICT functional skills abilities when they enter the world of work. Students will be more equipped in completing complex tasks using Microsoft Office applications in any industry.

We are excited to offer a game coding curriculum in collaboration with Software Academy in the near future…
