Vocational Education Specialisation Module

Objective

Students should be able to methodically design, realise and implement relatively simple information systems with the aid of problem oriented tools; and can identify problems involved in project management.

Context

Units VS1, VS2 and VS3 together prepare students for a start in a business environment where ICT plays an important role. Unit VS1 addresses the problem of the design, realisation and implementation of a simple (business) information system for administrative purposes. Unit VS2 addresses the problem of the design, realisation and implementation of a simple technical process control system for technical purposes. Unit VS3 addresses the issues of project management involved.

A higher technical level of competence can be achieved by studying Unit GS1 from the General Specialisation Module before starting on VS1, VS2 and VS3.

Instead of studying Units VS1, VS2 and VS3 in sequence, Unit VS3 may be used to provide a realistic context within which the objectives of Units VS1 and VS2 can be met.
