This unit provides an introduction to the Essential IT Skills course, outlining the course structure and how the rest of the units cover the course content.
Introduction to PCs & Laptops
To get the course underway, we begin by explaining the process of logging into a computer, and the need for passwords and security. We then move on to demonstrate how you can control a computer with a mouse or trackpad, and a keyboard.
Apps & Programmes
In this section, we introduce you to programmes on a computer, or apps as we will now call them.
Working with Files
Now it is time to show you how you can create a basic document on a computer. We also explain what toolbars and menus are within apps.
Looking After your Files
Here we continue to work with files by explaining how you can look after them. In addition, we introduce you to drag and drop, and show you how to delete and recover files.
No course on basic computer skills is complete without a section on the internet. In this part of the course, we will get you ready to search and browse websites including government websites "Find a Job" and "Universal Credit".
Despite the online nature of the world today, printing is still an important part of computer usage. This is still especially true in the world of business.
In this optional module, we explore more of the printing options that some apps offer. We’ll outline how you can tell your printer to print specific pages, print in a certain direction, and how to print multiple pages on a single page.
In this last module, we will cover storage devices. These gadgets are essential tools to transfer information and keep our work safe.
Obtaining your certificate
You will need to pass a multiple-choice exam at the end of the course in order to gain your accreditation. Once passed, we will send your official certificate by email.
