The Level 2 Certificate in IT User Skills (ITQ) aims to meet the needs of Learners who are working or want to work with IT or ICT across a range of sectors. This qualification provides Learners with the opportunity to develop their IT skills for personal use or in preparation for employment or career progression.

This course aims to develop your employee’s knowledge, understanding and competence in a range of different IT areas. This course is ideal for those who work with IT within their current job role and for those who are familiar with using a computer and the Microsoft Office suite (Word, Excel and PowerPoint). To complete this course your employee’s will need access to a computer and a basic level of IT knowledge. It would also be of benefit to have some level of confidence in producing documents in Word, PowerPoint and Excel (as employees will need to do this as part of their assessment). 

Where this course is suitable for learners aged 14 and over, this course is not for beginners, or for those who don’t already have consistent access to a computer.

This course will encourage you and employee’s to think about how IT can be used in different ways as they are introduced to specific tools that will aid them in utilising IT in everyday life. They will consider the best software and tools for specific tasks and will do this with the view of improving their productivity and efficiency. They will also learn about the importance of IT security; from unwanted emails and spam, to computer viruses and firewalls. And as they make progress through the course they will look in detail at presentation and spreadsheet software and will be assessed on their understanding and use of these.

Please note: Competency elements will be assessed by viewing datafiles or screenshots of completed work and portfolio of evidence. You will need access to a computer and the Microsoft Office suite to complete the course.
