Description

IT Skills Club

The IT Skills Club is a 10 week club that runs for one hour a week and each week the children work on a different fun project that will increase their IT Skills and confidence with computers. Children will be using Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Excel along with other online tools to help with their typing, editing and creative technical skills. Their will be a little coding, but the focus of this club is on other, basic IT skills that will be needed in the future no matter what course the child will take. Having experience with typing, word processing, spreadsheets and presentations prior to secondary school will be an invaluable skill.
