Course Overview

You will spend practical sessions with your tutor who is a qualified Microsoft Expert. During the sessions you will watch demonstrations and then complete tasks yourself to learn the various tools and techniques that Microsoft Office has to offer.

You will be fully supported with your learning and your tutor will guide you through each task, assisting you were needed. The learning takes place in a very supportive environment where you can get started learning IT with confidence. You will gain the qualification by completing a portfolio of work, which will be assessed by your tutor/assessor.

For each unit you will collect evidence, which will be practical examples of your IT work created during the sessions and questionnaires to cover the knowledge. There are no exams.

After Your Course
