Beginners ICT


This course will allow you to use a personal computer and work with desktop icons, windows and folders.
It will enable you to perform routine internet-related tasks safely and to prepare simple documents using Word to write business letters, using basic spreadsheets, as well as enabling you to gain confidence in how to use a computer.




Day and time of study will be confirmed before the start of your course.

Maths and English

Maths and English skills are essential for the workplace and university. If you have not achieved a new grade 9-4 or do not hold an A* to C in GCSE maths or English, your study programme at college will include teaching that will support you to progress your skills in these subjects. If you achieved a grade 3 or hold a D in either maths or English, you will re-sit your GCSE qualification with us. If your grade was lower than a 3, or your qualification is below a D, you will study Functional Skills to enhance your maths and English skills. Even if you have already achieved a grade 4 or above, or hold a A* to C, we will continue to develop your skills and help you progress further.
