Flexible learning 

Flexible ITQs can be tailored to meet individual and business needs, and can be built using a range of ITQ units such as word processing and spreadsheets, project management, desktop publishing or using mobile IT devices.
  • Overview

    ITQ progression routes

    The flexibility of ITQs encourages progression by recognising small steps of achievement and enabling your learners to build on their existing skills.

    Progression can be demonstrated either by increasing the number of units and working towards a larger qualification:

    • Award 
    • Certificate
    • Diploma

    or by developing skills at a higher level:

    • Level 1
    • Level 2
    • Level 3

    Why choose a flexible ITQ?

    BCS ITQs are nationally recognised qualifications, which provide the skills needed to enhance learners’ employability and enable them to benefit from IT and online services.
