What do you need?

How you are assessed

The course takes place at a gentle pace over eight weeks (depending on the length of the term) where your tutor will help you cover the course units and print the evidence required for the qualification. You will be guided through the units by a supportive and friendly tutor.
It is unlikely that you will need to do work outside of the class, however, it will always be beneficial to practise using the computer at home.

How Long?

10 weeks
