LiveSchool is a new way of learning A level Computer Science from Pembrokeshire College.

You will have access to 120 x one hour A level Computer Science lessons delivered live by your course tutor (two per week during term time throughout the course).

All of these live sessions are also recorded to allow you to access any of your previous lessons whenever you want to…which is very useful for revising!

LiveSchool also includes A level Computer Science revision and exam preparation sessions towards the end of the course.

The A Level Computer Science – LiveSchool course covers the following topics:

  • The characteristics of contemporary processors, input, output and storage devices
  • Software and software development
  • Programming
  • Exchanging data
  • Data types, data structures and algorithms
  • Legal, moral, cultural and ethical issues
  • Elements of computational thinking
  • Problem solving and programming
  • Algorithms to solve problems and standard algorithms

While there are no formal requirements to study A Level Computer Science LiveSchool, we recommend that you have completed an appropriate Level 2 IGCSE IT course prior to your study and have a strong grasp of English and Maths.

Included with your LiveSchool A Level Computer Science Course is:

  • 24/7 access to the LiveSchool learning platform so you can study anytime
  • ALL learning documentation (including text books)
  • Access to media-rich interactive learning resources
  • 120 hours of A Level Computer Science online lessons (including recordings)
  • Lively and interactive lessons, where you can engage in with other students
  • Dedicated course tutor
  • Tutor-marked assignments + feedback
  • 24 months priority tutor support
  • Tutor-marked past papers
  • Revision support and examination preparation

As part of your A Level Computer Science LiveSchool Course you will be required to complete regular assessments which we call HomeWork.

While your HomeWork does not count towards your final grade, it is used to monitor your progress and ability.

All HomeWork has been designed to prepare you for your examinations, and questions are based on examination style questions.

Your HomeWork has been designed to match a specific A level Computer Science LiveSchool session, so it is easy to go back and revisit the relevant lesson if you get stuck.

The most important part of your Computer Science A Level course (apart from you) is your dedicated tutor.

All LiveSchool tutors have extensive academic experience and have taught Computer Science in the classroom as well as online.

You will be assigned a tutor as soon as you enrol on your course who will support you for 24 months during your studies. You can contact your tutor via email, messaging or telephone with any questions.

24 months tutor support included with this course.
