These Functional Skills ICT resources have been created to help students to succeed in the practical examination of the course. They build on skills that should have been covered within KS3 ICT. As such, the activities are focused on problem solving, independent selection of the most appropriate application to use, evaluating end-products, etc.

Before beginning the unit of work below we recommend that you allow one lesson for students to create an appropriate folder structure and to sign up for an account on the What2Learn system. This will give them full access to all of our interactive content to enhance their learning and provide extension and support. It will also allow you to use our automated assessment system to track their progress. Learn more about this award-winning resource here.
