This course offers the learner a qualification that develops their digital skills and supports them getting into work and performing their job roles effectively.
The qualification reflects the latest government thinking on basic digital skills and the Basic Digital Skills Framework. It is designed to support learners developing their digital skills to improve their employability prospects.
Learners who have previously completed the Digital Skills for Life Beginners and Improvers, can progress onto this course and work toward a level of digital competency essential in the workplace.

In order to avoid disappointment, it is advisable to enrol at least 2½ weeks prior to the course starting. We will confirm course information two weeks prior to the start date.

The course provides the learner with an opportunity to:
• use digital skills to handle work-related tasks such as finding information online, storing and retrieving files, creating and editing digital content;
• create and save straightforward documents and sound, image or video files, as appropriate to a work context;
• edit and format work-related documents and input data into existing documents;
• use digital skills to communicate in a work context, for example, to send and receive online communications for work-related purposes, in line with given guidelines;
• use digital devices safely and responsibly, for example, identifying common online risks and threats in a work environment;
• solve simple technical problems.

Please note there will be no teaching sessions on: 03/06/2022 and 08/07/2022.

There is no parking on the campus during the day. Please use Marriotts Walk or Woodford Way Car Parks which are a few minutes’ walk away.
Please report to Reception on arrival. A photo-id will be issued, for you to wear when you attend classes.
There are vending machines available where hot/cold drinks and snacks can be purchased. To reduce the use of single-use plastic water bottles/cups, there are watercoolers on site making it easy to refill your water bottle.

Abingdon and Witney College is subject to Ofsted regulation and is required to work with all its students to make sure they understand Government initiatives around Safeguarding, Prevent and Fundamental British Values. Information on these matters will be shared with you during your course.

You will also be asked to complete monitoring paperwork, which helps us to deliver course content to the highest quality.

Further Digital Skills courses.
Learners should have attended the Digital Skills for Life - Improvers course, or have equivalent skills.

Courses can fill fast, so please enrol early to avoid disappointment. Decisions on whether a course is to run are made two weeks prior to the start date - an email will be sent to you should there be changes to your course or if it is cancelled. Please check your inbox leading up to your course, including the junk folders. For anyone without an email account, our Admissions team will phone you instead.

For the first week of the course you will need to bring a valid form of identification; this includes passport, driving licence, debit/credit card, Birth Certificate or National Insurance card.

Please note - you should be 19 years old or over at 31st August 2021 prior to starting the course.
Courses offered by the college are fully or partly funded by the Government and the published fee takes account of this funding.

Before starting a course, the College is required to check you meet conditions relating to that funding, e.g. age, residency status within the UK/EEA, prior qualification level and employment status. In some circumstances (such as with online enrolments), these checks can only be completed after you have enrolled and paid.

If you are unable to pay in full for this course at the time of enrolment, and the course tuition fee is £300 or more, an instalment plan is available. If this is your preference, please do not enrol online but rather call the Admissions Team on 01235 216400 to enrol.

Once enrolled, Admissions will take the first instalment payment from you and pass on your details to the Finance team who will email you to set-up your payment plan. Please return a fully completed instalment plan to Finance as failure to do so could result in being withdrawn from your course.

The rules on fee reduction are complicated, we would encourage you to talk to our Admissions Team on 01235 216400 to discuss these options. You can find more information on our Fees and Bursaries page - search "Fees and Bursaries" at the top of the page.
