Whether you’re 8 years old or 80 years young, Whizzkids has a course for you!
Children aged 3 to 4 years attend classes for half-an-hour on a weekly basis. Children are introduced to concepts such as shape, colour, number and letters through the use of stimulating computer programs. The lessons help to develop confidence in using a computer and awareness of the different parts of a computer.
Primary & Secondary
Children aged 5 and up attend classes for an hour a week and are introduced to touch-typing and various computer applications such as word processing, spreadsheets, databases, multimedia presentations, computer art, Internet, web design and desktop publishing. Materials used to teach these applications support the National Curriculum and are taught at a relevant level for each child. Software aimed at reinforcing their learning of the school curriculum subjects may also be included where requested.
Older children may wish to focus their studies on ITQ which is a series of examinations by Oxford Cambridge and RSA that lead to a recognised qualification. There are many different units to work on such as word processing, spreadsheets, desktop publishing and databases and more experienced pupils may progress onto ITQ Level 2 to develop their skills further. Please contact me if you would like to receive an information pack or visit the OCR website.
Whizzkids also offers one-to-one tuition in maths, spelling and reading for children of primary school age. Please contact me for further details.
Adult lessons are available for complete beginners or those wishing to improve their skills. The content of all lessons is customized to meet your needs. Areas of tuition include word processing, spreadsheets, databases, Internet, e-mail, and desktop publishing. As an approved OCR centre tuition in OCR ITQ is available for those who would like to gain a computer literacy qualification.
