About this course

This course has been designed for Learners at the very start of their IT journey. This 4-week, face-to-face, course will cover IT basics, for example;

  • How to turn on your device and navigate a computer
  • How to connect to Wi-Fi and access the internet
  • How to load your favourite website and save as a favourite.
  • How to set-up an email address and access an email account

By the end of the course you should be able to start up your device connect to the internet and browse your favourite websites. You will also become familiar with key icons on your computer desktop.

It is preferable to have you own laptop to learn on, so you become familiar with the layout and icons on your individual device. However, laptops are available if required – just request one at the time of booking.

Once you complete this course you will be ready to enrol on an accredited basic IT qualification called Essential Digital Skills. The Essential Digital Skills qualification will further develop your IT skills in areas such as, transacting, keeping safe online and using digital communications.
