Administration & ict
NATIONAL 3 ADMINISTRATION AND ICT
The skills learned in Administration transfer directly to the world of work and National 3 Administration not only prepares our learners to enter the office environment at a beginner’s level, but also gives them a taste of how their skills will be applied in the world of work.
The course covers three main units that are taught using a mix of teacher led lessons and department developed self-study booklets that can be used by the young people independently and with the support of non-subject specific teachers and PSA’s. This means that this course can be offered to our Woodmill Community out with the department within both our DAS and WES departments.
Candidates will learn basic functions of word processing, spreadsheets, and databases to create and edit documents used in the workplace. They will use the internet to find information and then use the basic functions of desktop publishing, presentation, and e-mail for communicating a limited amount of information. Most excitingly for the Administration in Action assessment, our young people will be given the opportunity to use a range of skills to carry out a series of simple administration and IT-related tasks to provide administrative support for an event. Successful completion of this task will ultimately result in the course award.

IT Solutions for Administrators develops learners’ basic skills in word processing, spreadsheets and databases, and then Communication in Administration enables pupils to use IT for gathering and sharing simple information with others.
