Summary

This course is a first-step course for complete beginners looking to learn some IT skills to help you navigate the technological world in your day to day life. Computers can enhance your life and today's society is seeing everything changing to online from banking, booking holidays and even the weekly shop. Working at a gentle pace, you will cover switching on the computer, using a mouse, navigating the computer and moving onto using the internet to search on Google, storing your information safely on your computer, how to stay safe online, using emails and storing/sending photos. You will be introduced to using social media like Facebook and auction sites like eBay

How will I know how I am doing?

The course is paced at a level suitable to a beginners class. Your tutor will give you plenty of helpful feedback and guidance throughout the course. In this class you will go at your own pace, it is not a class where you will compare yourself with anyone else. Everyone comes to computers with a different background and experience, and everyone learns to use them at a different pace. The tutor will encourage you to set yourself small, realistic goals during the course. We know that learning a new skill can be daunting but in this safe environment, practice makes perfect and we encourage you to not shy away from repeating the things you’re learning time and time again until you feel you’ve got it. Its a great place to make mistakes without judgement, but with support and guidance .

What can I do next?

Once you feel confident with the new skills you have learned, you can progress to the Intermediate IT course. Your tutor will give you feedback and support your transition.
