Ever wanted to understand the elements of a spreadsheet and how to present numeric data. This course will introduce you to these and extend to presenting the data in graphs and charts.
What are the overall aims of the course?
This course will show you how to enter data into a spreadsheet efficiently, format both text and numeric data to produce good quality presentation of work, apply functions which are built-in to Excel and to write your own formulae and check the results. You will also learn how to use data to create simple charts and graphs to provide a more readily understood form of the data in a worksheet. As with all computer work you will also be saving and retrieving files and look at printing of results.
What will I learn on the course?
Enter data – text and numbers
Use functions and formulae
Use data to create charts and graphs
Your tutor will give you more information at the start of the course.
Are there any entry requirements?
To benefit from this course, participants must be able to use a keyboard and mouse. An elementary level of numeracy will be required as the course involves creating simple formulae.
Do I need to attend a course approval interview/assessment before I can join this course?
How will I be taught?
You will be shown everything by demonstration and then asked to complete a task to show your understanding. As a one-off course, there is no compulsion to do work outside of the class but it is certainly recommended especially if progression to a further level is desired. Materials are provided which enable learners to reinforce learning at home afterwards and extend their understanding.
How will my progress be checked?
Informal assessment in class
Tutor and peer observation
There is no formal assessment on this course, but the tutor will be ensuring that work is understood as the class progresses.
Does the course have any features I should be aware of?
As a computer based course, it is expected that learners will have a reasonable knowledge of the computer. If in doubt about your ability to cope seek advice from a member of the iCLICK team in the College. This course is not designed to teach the computer, only the spreadsheet software. The progress of all class members can be hindered without this knowledge.
What do I need to bring with me to class?
A notepad and pen would be useful to make additional notes on top of those provided. A memory stick would be useful to take away your work for further practice.
How do I find out if I can get some support for my learning?
Additional Learning Support (ALS) may be made available for learners who, at the time of assessment and/or enrolment, declare a difficulty or disability that may affect their learning. Our service can support learners in English, maths, who are dyslexic, deaf or hearing impaired or who have evidence of other medical issues impacting on learning. Learners can also find information about financial and child care support from the Customer Enquiry Centre.
There is free guest Wi-Fi available in the College
Can I receive advice and guidance about further education opportunities and careers?
Yes. To find out more about what may be available to you please contact our Advice Team. See www.suttoncollege.ac.uk/college/advice-centre
What can I do after the course has finished?
Your tutor will recommend further courses which will help to continue your learning in this subject. For those with a good understanding the next course would be Microsoft Excel – Intermediate.
