Taught by highly experienced staff, our A-level Electronics course has been running for over 25 years and achieves consistently great results. Your challenging, interesting classes are delivered in a bright laboratory with data projection facilities and a laptop for each student. You will become quite the expert at using computer-aided design (CAD) software to design and test your ideas. As well as Excel and Word and the internet, you will use specialist software to include Crocodile Clips, Livewire, ICON Soft Electronics and PICTutor. There are detailed interactive notes for all the modules on the Bilborough Sixth Form College Moodle so we won’t spend a lot of time taking notes. You will get hands-on experience of building many of the circuits we investigate.
Our links with HE
We’re always delighted when Electronics students from Bilborough Sixth Form College go on to study related degree subjects such as Engineering, Computing, Games Production and Music / Media – and indeed many of them do. Our tutors have good knowledge about higher education and are always happy to give you expert advice on suitable progression routes. We have strong relationships with local universities such as Nottingham Trent (we helped test their ICON control software, which is still used in lessons today!).
