• IT User Fundamentals

• Using the internet to plan a trip

• Using email

• Website Software

• Exploring digital photography

• Working in business administration

As part of your course you will enrol upon Functional Skills. This will support you to improve your Maths and English. In addition you will undertake Personal Social Development skills to support you in your future entry into employment or progression.

Entry Qualification: You will need to be at least 16 years of age but otherwise there are no formal entry requirements. We will, however, be looking for a reasonable standard of literacy, numeracy and general ICT skills. The most important requirement is that you are keen to gain new skills and qualifications. Entry will be determined via interview. Special Features: All students will have access to up to date IT facilities as well as LearningBox (our Virtual Learning Environment). Support and advice is available throughout the duration of the course from teaching and Additional Learning Staff. Course Format: This is a vocational course where students are assessed via the production of an electronic portfolio. This will consist of practical demonstrations, observations, written reports, presentations and video evidence. All units are based around a central scenario giving learners the opportunity to apply learning to real world situations. Progression: You could progress onto the BTEC Level 2 Diploma in Information and Creative Technology or into employment.
