The aim of the IT User Skills Certificate is to recognise the application of a range of practical ICT skills and knowledge in life, learning and the workplace.

There are no entry requirements. However, you will be required to complete a brief assessment to ensure that the course is suitable for you.

Gaining this qualification will enable you to improve your competency in:

The basics – security and safety: passwords, viruses, storage and file management

The Internet and email – searching, sending and receiving emails, contacts lists, and organising your inbox

Word processing – entering, editing and formatting text and documents, inserting tables and graphics

Spreadsheets – entering, editing, sorting and filtering data, formatting and formulas

Charts and graphs – producing different types of charts and graphs: bar, column, line and pie charts

Presentations – understanding, making and editing presentations

This course will be delivered on-site.

It would be advantageous to have your own electronic device for word processing e.g. a laptop or a PC and access to the Internet so that you can continue to develop your skills at home, but this is not essential.

You will be assessed continually through the development of an individual learning plan.

You will build a portfolio of evidence for each topic, showcasing your skills, and present the evidence in a portfolio which is assessed by your tutor and externally by the exam board.

There is no formal end exam as the assessment is based on the completion of an evidence-based portfolio.  

What you do next is up to you:

  • Use the skills you learn in work, study or everyday life
  • Use those skills to help you succeed in any future course of study that you may be considering
