Who is this course for?

This course is suitable for those wishing to develop IT skills as part of their professional development or to enhance employment opportunities.

What you'll learn

During this course you will need a minimum of 10 credits to achieve the Award at Level 2 and there is no mandatory unit so you can choose to make up the credits from a range of units.

You are able to gain some credits by choosing a Level 1 unit but at least seven credits must be at Level 2.

For both the Award and Certificate at Level 1 and 2, you can choose from a variety of units to make up the required number of credits. You will be able to choose from word processing, spreadsheets, database and presentation software.

Course entry requirements

To join this course, you need to have achieved an IT qualification at Level 1 or equivalent. Students must have English skills equivalent to Level 1 to enable them to understand written instructions and information.

How is the course delivered and assessed?

This course is assessed through examinations throughout the year and you will receive regular feedback on your progress.

Most of the learning will be done through the use of college workbooks, workshop settings, with tutors available to help where necessary.

It is also possible to use the online facility to do extra practice outside of college.

Future career and study opportunities

After successfully completing this course, your ECDL is a professional development qualification which can open up opportunities within existing employment or for new employment.

This Level 2 qualification can also provide skills for students to consider other courses within the college such as the Business Admin Level 2 or progress to do a Business Administration Apprenticeship.

There may be opportunities to do specific professional qualifications such as an AAT Accounting course.
