Our aim is to equip students with the tools and skills that they need to become proficient in the use of a PC and various software applications. Students have been given a very well equipped classroom with good facilities and resources, which include access to the latest Microsoft Windows operating system and Office applications. By being taught the theoretical principles and combining this with a plethora of practical activities, students will be able to become very literate in computing which is something that is absolutely essential for candidates in general, but even more so those wishing to pursue a career in this field in the future.
Students will be working on Functional Skills ICT courses. On this course they learn the features and mechanics of the Microsoft Office Suite (Word, Excel, Power Point, publisher and access). In addition to that, young learners will be introduced to lessons focused on Internet Safety, using emails, Vector drawing, Graphics Design, Engineering and Programming. Our main goal is to maintain a ‘student-led’ approach with activities that encourage students to work in teams and support each other in class.
