What is the difference between IT Skills and Computer Science?

The school curriculum for computing has changed in recent years, with a greater focus now on the science of computing rather than on the applications. Computer Science is concerned with how computers and computer systems work, and how they are designed and programmed. IT (Infomation Technology) or ICT (Infomation and Communication Technology) deal with applying computer systems to solve real-world problems such as finding things out, exchanging and sharing information, and reviewing, modifying and evaluating work.

IT Skills

Digital culture and digital literacy have changed the way that people live, work, learn and play. Growing up in an IT-rich environment means that children need to have opportunities to experience and develop IT skills that will help them make the most of their adult life. IT is incorporated into practically every lesson at school, from the Primary Key Stages onwards; from interactive whiteboards and virtual learning environments, to educational computer games and cloud based technologies such as the internet, email and e-learning platforms. In the early years, the emphasis is on getting children familiar with the technology and in using the software for isolated tasks. Later, pupils will be taught how to use various programs for a particular task and may present their findings from an investigation. At higher levels, pupils should be able to design systems for others to use and to critically evaluate these systems.

GCSE and A-Level Computer Science

The GCSE Computer Science course is a very demanding and academic course, focusing on the founding principles and practices of computation and in the design and development of computer systems. At GCSE level, students are introduced to the Central Processing Unit (CPU), computer memory and storage, wired and wireless networks, network topologies, system security, system software, computational thinking, algorithms and programming. At A-Level, the course is divided into two complementary parts: theory and programming. On the theory side, students study the internal workings of a computer, right down the basics of how data is stored along with other aspects of computer architecture. On the programming side, students learn a programming language (usually chosen by the school) from C#, Java, Pascal/Delphi, Python and Visual Basic.NET. The A-Level is assessed with two exam papers (each 40%), plus a practical project (20%) which will typically be done over a period of 3 months.

The cost of a IT Skills tutor in Surrey can vary depending on several factors, such as qualifications, experience, and whether Face-to-Face or Online. Private IT Skills tutors in Surrey may cost anywhere from £15 to £60 per hour. A qualified teacher in Surrey from Teachers To Your Home, will range from £17.50 per hour for online group tuition, to £50 for Face-to-Face A Level IT Skills Tuition in Surrey.

Face-to-face tuition in Surrey allows for direct interaction and personalized attention from the IT Skills tutor. It provides a more structured learning environment and can help students stay more motivated and focused. On the other hand, online tuition offers more flexibility in terms of scheduling and location. Students can access IT Skills tutoring from anywhere and online sessions can be recorded for future reference. Online tuition also tends to be more affordable and can offer a wider range of IT Skills tutors and subjects. Ultimately, the best choice depends on the individual student's needs and preferences. Younger or SEN students may benefit more from face-to-face tuition, while older students may prefer the convenience and flexibility of online tuition.

Group IT Skills tutoring provides a supportive environment where students can work together, learn from one another and engage in collaborative problem-solving. It provides students with a variety of perspectives and ideas, which can lead to a deeper understanding of the subject matter. Being in a group allows students to work together, communicate effectively, and develop teamwork skills. Group IT Skills tutoring is often less expensive than one-on-one IT Skills tutoring, making it more accessible for students who need extra help.

Not every child in Surrey needs a IT Skills tutor, but there are many scenarios where tuition will be beneficial. The obvious is if a child is not attending school for whatever reason. If they are at school, a IT Skills tutor may be needed to stop a student from falling behind, which can lead to disillusionment and behavioural issues; or to get back on track after a poor end-of-year exam result. If a specific learning difficulty or Special Educational Need (SEN) is identified, then IT Skills Tuition in Surrey can provide a vital reinforcement. For high stakes exams, such as 11+, Common Entrance (often 13+) for schools in Surrey, GCSE and A-Level or IB, tuition can provide that final boost to get over the line, the stretch to reach the top grades required for the next stage of education, or assistance with specific exam techniques that may not be taught at school.
