Audit rates college computing course as Grade A.
The European Computer Driving Licence (ECDL) is audited every spring and this year was presented with Grade A. The audit involves rigorous checks to ensure that the course is run according to standards set by the British Computer Society.
The course comprises eight units - basic concepts, file management, word processing, spreadsheets, databases, presentation graphics, internet and email and using IT.
Students who pass basic concepts, file management and internet and email achieve a Level One certificate. Those who complete the entire course are awarded with a Level Two.
The high grade awarded this year allows the college to run the Advanced ECDL for the first time ever in September, giving Level Two students the chance to progress and study to an Advanced level.
ECDL test centre manager Mike Kibble is delighted with the course success. He said: "I am very pleased we have managed a Grade A.
"It opens up the capability to offer an advanced course, making us one of the few colleges who do so in the area."
