ITQ 2009 – Level 1

Are you a beginner with the computer, or only have a basic knowledge, and wish to boost your IT confidence?
Do you want to learn the basics, increase your knowledge and get a recognised qualification?
If the answer to either of the above is “yes”, why not consider this qualification?

What is ITQ 2009?

It is a unique package of “pick and mix” units covering a wide range of IT subjects, and providing a one-stop shop for all learners looking to develop, improve or advance their computer skills.
You can opt to achieve single units, or an Award, a Certificate in IT User Skills. Each unit has a “credit” value and at level 1, you need to accumulate 9 credits for an Award, 13 credits for a Certificate. For the Certificate level, the credits must include the mandatory unit.


How will ITQ 2009 benefit me?

• Recognised – OCR qualifications are nationally recognised, and you will receive certificates to recognise your achievements along the way.
• Relevant – the learning is tailored to meet your needs by concentrating on the subjects that are relevant to you and to the work environment.
• Individual – you can learn at your own pace and take as long, or a short a time as you need – there are no time constraints and you can choose just one unit, or any combination in any order.
• Progression – OCR qualifications help to enhance your career, assist you to get back to work or simply enable you to learn something new.
