Computing (Computer Science & ICT)Back
The core of computing is computer science, in which pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work, and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Buildings on this knowledge and understanding, pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content.
Computer Science also ensures that students become digitally literate – driven, and express themselves and develop their ideas through identifying issues and problem solving – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.
The Computer Science department offers extra - curricular activities such as ‘robotics club’ which compete in the First Tech Challenge. During this extra - curricular club students develop STEM skills and practice engineering principles whilst being innovative, enabling them to realise the TLA value of Curiosity, exploration and discovery.
The world of computers is growing at an un-recordable rate everyday, computers are the most influential tools in our lives, and they are our present and future. The planet can measure the exponential growth and excitement in the computing industry, an industry which you want to be a part of!!
The Langley Academy Computer Science Department believes that Computer Science is a crucial tool needed to survive in our modern world. Our aim at TLA is not only to ensure students successfully complete their qualifications to the best of their ability but also to equip all of them with the skills needed to survive in a rapidly-changing world. We want our students to be able to participate fully in a world of technology. We aim to enable them to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information but also to become successful computational thinkers.
Expertise in computer Science enables you to solve complex, challenging problems. Computing enables you to make a positive difference in the world. Computing offers many types of lucrative careers such as IT consultant, Cybersecurity consultant, Multimedia programmer, Systems analyst, Games developer, Web designer.
