ICT Resources

This resource covers what is expected at the Entry 2 ICT Functional Skills exam. It follows the structure of an exam paper.  An E1 version is also available.

I based in it on a Skillsworkshop English resource by Isabel Jordan. 

Editor's note

Super practice for Entry Level 2 ICT. I love it when skillsworkshop users adapt and recycle existing resources. :) You can find the E1 version of this resource, along with Isabel Jordan's original Pavement Plants Functional English resources under "See Also".

A word processing activity which involves typing and formatting and also contains useful information.

The idea is that the learners digest the text that they are working with and learn from it. I would put it at about level E2/3.

Students design a board game to demonstrate their learning. This can incorporate IT skills (Word template provided below) or can be done with paper, card and pens.

I originally did this with an E2E group and it proved popular. It’s an alternative to the “design a poster” task to review learning. The instructions are set out as a board game. it can be used for literacy, numeracy, ICT or ESOL.

First used with a group of E1-E2 numeracy students who had done an ICT based project involving cookery work and visiting a cafe to buy a snack. Print on A4 and fold into a very nice A5 leaflet.
The self assessment check boxes focus on basic money skills (recognising coins, giving change – but also slecting items from a list, weighing, etc.) but there is also the opportunity to link learning to numeracy at home or at college. Ideal for Entry Functional maths / catering / hospitality students.
