    What’s in it for me?

    • Improving your IT skills can improve your productivity!
    • If you’re not that familiar with using computers then don’t suffer in silence.
    • Why not gain an additional internationally recognised IT qualification, such as the ECDL and ECDL Advanced Certificates? These qualifications will enhance your CV and improve your career prospects, as they are recognised by employers.  The training for these accredited awards is also free; you will only have to pay the exam fee for each exam undertaken.

     

    Are there any resources?

    • You can find help for IT related issues on Learning Space and the TEL Forum.
    • More resources on the use of software can be found on the IT Training section on Learning Space (Go to the Study and Learn tab on the top of the page and select IT Training. You will need to log-in and enrol yourself to this section).
