Accredited Courses

Entry Level 3 Information Technology (START IT )
This course is aimed at those who have little experience of using the basic features of a Word Processor and Spreadsheet or have some experience but wish to formalise their skills to achieve an initial accreditation in IT.  Over a period of approximately 25 hours (see below), participants will learn about the fundamentals of computer systems, learn how the set out and produce a document (such as a letter) using Microsoft Word,  and create simple spreadsheets to carry out calculations, and create a simple presentation using Microsoft Powerpoint.  This course can be offered on a weekly basis (2.5 hours per week, e.g. 9.30am - 12noon) for 10 weeks) or an 'accelerated' 5-day course, taking place over a shorter timescale of 1-2 weeks with attendance on a daily basis between 9.30am and 3.00pm (with a short break for lunch).

Unaccredited Short (e.g. One-Day) Courses

We offer a number of unaccredited courses.  By unaccredited, we mean that they are not certified by our awarding body City and Guilds given that they are short courses and do not include a formal assessment of learning.  The Centre does, however, provide participants with a certificate of attendance, including a list of the skills and knowledge acquired on the day.  Participants have the option to return to the centre to take a unit assessment (additional fee payable for registration with City and Guilds) in the software package at the level undertaken.
