Cyber Security
Tuesday 30th January 2018
10.00 - 15.30
£179 plus VAT

This is an introduction to the SQA’s 'Cyber Security' National Progression Award GK7W that is offered at levels 4, 5 and 6. The course will briefly cover the three units that make up the NPA: Data Security, Digital Forensics and Ethical Hacking - looking at the progression between the levels within the units, the theory behind the units, the practical tasks and the assessments that are involved in delivering this course. This will naturally lead to the hardware and software resources and demands required to deliver the practical aspects of the award. Opportunities will be available to try out some of the practical activities that learners are expected to carry out for themselves.

 

Computing Science Advanced Higher – PHP and SQL
Date tbc
10.00 - 15.30
£179 plus VAT

The course will be composed of 3 sessions that will look at using server-side scripts to work with SQL databases. It will start with the SQL operations as specified in the Mandatory Content. This will be followed by creating Forms in HTML code. The third integrates this knowledge to look at how PHP server-side scripts are used to process the data taken from an HTML Form, converting this into SQL queries before finally outputting the result to a web browser.

Editable teaching and learning materials that can be used directly with AH students will be provided to deliver this area of the Advanced Higher Computing Science course.
