Level 2 Certificate in IT User Skills
This course aims to develop knowledge, understanding and competence in a range of different IT areas. This course is ideal for those who work with IT within their current job role and for those who are familiar with using a computer and the Microsoft Office suite (Word, Excel and PowerPoint).
To complete this course access to a computer is essential and a basic level of IT knowledge recommended. It would also be of benefit to have some level of confidence in producing your own documents in Word, PowerPoint and Excel (as you will need to do this as part of your assessment).
Where this course is suitable for learners aged 14 and over, this course is not for beginners, or for those who don’t already have consistent access to a computer. This course will encourage thinking about how IT can be used in different ways with an introduction to specific tools that will aid utilising IT in everyday life. Consider the best software and tools for specific tasks with the view of improving productivity and efficiency.
Learn about the importance of IT security; from unwanted emails and spam, to computer viruses and firewalls. Through the course, presentation and spreadsheet software will be introduced and an assessment carried out on the understanding and use of these.
Please note: Competency elements will be assessed by viewing datafiles or screenshots of completed work. Access to a computer is required and the Microsoft Office suite to complete the course.
