Computing students at Central Bedfordshire College (CBC).


IT Skills

Our basic IT Skills course provides a basic foundation in using a basic ICT equipment. The course will introduce the learner to mouse and keyboard usage and slowly build their confidence in using the desktop. The course also offers a brief introduction into what applications are. Finally, the learner is introduced to Microsoft office including power points, word and excel etc.

IT skills are becoming more and more essential in the workplace – no matter what field you’re in. And with many employers considering IT proficiency a prerequisite, there’s never been a better time to brush up on your knowledge.
