Functional Skills - ICT

If you have never used a computer before, or have only used one occasionally and don’t feel very confident about your skills, the ICT
(Information and Communication Technology) programme of courses is ideal for you. You’ll receive support from your tutor and opportunities to practise what you’ve learnt.

Ideally you will complete most or all of the courses in the programme, with each course you take building and developing your skills and knowledge. If you are new to computers, we strongly recommend you start with the Beginner ICT course before continuing onto the other courses. 

If you attend all courses you will have the opportunity to work towards the Functional Skills qualification. You may also then be ready to develop your skills in some of these areas such as Word Processing at a higher level, by progressing onto our Skills for Further Study programme.

How much does it cost?

These courses are FREE of charge if you are claiming certain means-tested benefits, for more details go to our fee information page.
