You must commit to 100% attendance. We understand that there may be the need for you to swap the session occasionally to a different time or day but do not worry as each subject follows the same content each week.

Course content:

This course will cover all aspects of IT and digital skills: communicating, handling information and content, transacting, problem solving and being safe and legal online with learners working at a level appropriate for them. We will look at existing functional skills qualifications and the brand new essential digital skills qualifications.

Learners will gain access to free online and paper resources to support their learning both in and out the classroom.

In addition to the three hours of face to face teaching every learner will be expected to complete 1.5 hours of self study after each session.

There is no examination at the end of the course but time will be spent to establish which course in September 2021 is most suitable for each learner and also giving them the opportunity to enrol early to guarantee their place.

Each learner will receive a certificate of attendance and have the satisfaction that they will be enroled on a course starting in September that will lead to well know and widely accepted qualifications.
