    The objective of this qualification is to give learners the opportunity to develop their knowledge and skills in data management and social media in business. This will enable learners to progress to further study in the IT sector, or other sectors. Learners will study two mandatory units:

    Unit 2: Creating Systems to Manage Information (synoptic)

    Unit 3: Using Social Media in Business.

    This will allow progression to a variety of degrees when combined with other suitable Level 3 qualifications.

    Next Steps

    When taken alongside other Level 3 qualifications, including BTEC Higher Nationals or A Levels in complementary or contrasting subjects, such as mathematics, physics, science, arts or technology, the qualification gives learners the opportunity to progress to a degree in an IT discipline or a degree where IT related skills and knowledge may be advantageous. This qualification carries UCAS points and is recognised by higher education providers as meeting admission requirements for many relevant courses. The mandatory content is equivalent in size to one-half of an A Level.

    The qualification supports entry to, for example: • HNC in Travel and Tourism Management • HND in Art and Design • HND in Business • BSc (Hons) in Fashion Buying Management • BSc (Hons) in Physical Geography.

    Some university courses may require the achievement of specific units and learners should always check the entry requirements for degree programmes with specific higher education providers. The qualification, when studied with other Level 3 qualifications, is aimed at progression to higher education but also enables learners to develop knowledge and skills needed for entry-level roles related to IT. These could include vocational apprenticeship roles and trainee/entry-level roles, such as roles in administration, help desk support, help desk analysis, account management and customer service support.
