Course Information

If you are looking for an ICT Level 2 Functional Skills qualification for College, University or employment, then this is the course for you.

The Functional Skills ICT qualification will provide you with a practical grounding in how to apply ICT skills to everyday situations. With a strong focus on explanation and problem solving, using real-life contexts, this course will allow you to apply your ICT skills in a variety of situations. For example, think of a florist who is self-employed and requires a record of all of its customers. If they were able to setup a customer database, with names, addresses and contact details, they will have details of where flowers need to be delivered etc.

The Functional Skills course we offer includes:

  • 12 Months Access to the learner portal including a Personal Tutor who will guide you through the course.
  • Interactive portal which monitors your progress.
  • Online assessments
  • Marked practise exam papers
  • Option to be added to our Employability Skills Course for free.
  • Option for Online Exam with NCFE.

Functional Skills ICT Level 2 courses give you a practical grounding in how to apply ICT skills to everyday situations.

You will learn problem solving, using real-life contexts to allow you to apply your ICT skills in a variety of situations. For example, a self-employed boiler engineer will be able to set up a database of customers, with names, addresses and contact details, so that a mailing list can be created to remind clients when their service is due.

Functional skills ICT Level 2 is an online course. Therefore you will be given logins to our online portal. In order to be successful in the functional skills exam, we carry out the following with learners:-

Initial Screening We will ask you to complete an enrolment form online. This will help us to ensure that you are about to begin the right course. It is very rare that we would turn a learner away, however in the past we have set a plan to provide additional help if this is needed.

Initial Assessment Once we have completed the enrolment process, your logins will be emailed to you. You will login and begin by taking an initial assessment. The initial assessment will confirm the level that the learner is working at. This will most likely be lower than a level 2 and this is the reason why you are taking the course in the first place!

Diagnostic Assessment Once we have established what level you are currently working at, you will then go on to take a diagnostic assessment. This will identify the skill areas you need to work on to progress up to the next level.

Skills Plan After completing the diagnostic assessment, you will need to work through your skills plan. Your skills plan will provide you with resources to complete each topic and sign it off. Your tutor will be monitoring your progress whilst you are working through the work. There will also be mini assessments you will need to complete to ensure that you are competent in each area.

Distance Travelled Assessment Once you have completed your skills plan, your tutor will issue you with this assessment. This will determine how much you have improved since your initial assessment. Usually by this stage, learners are nearly ready to book their exams. The tutor will provide you with practise examinations papers to ensure that you are aware of how it will all work on the day of the examination.

Usually the exam will have questions set in real life. You will work with commonly used software, like Microsoft Word, to produce work and upload it into the test.

With our Functional Skills courses, we provide full tutor support meaning: -

  • You will have access to our online portal 24/7, where you can access all the learning resources and progression tracking you need.
  • You can message your tutor as many times as you need to with any queries you may have regarding your Functional Skills Course.
  • Your tutor will monitor your progress throughout the course and provide you with useful advice.
  • Your tutor will mark any assignments set and provide you with practise examinations papers in the lead up to your examinations.

Resources will cover the whole of the Functional Skills syllabus. Therefore you will not be required to purchase any books.
