About the Level 3 Information Technology Certificate

Computers and the internet are at the centre of modern life. In fact, in western society it is almost impossible to get by without having a basic understanding of IT. For many years, employers have insisted that job candidates are computer literate. However as a nationwide switch to digital systems seems to be underway, we are beginning to need IT skills outside the office as well.

This online distance learning course has been designed for anyone who wants to improve their IT abilities. Consisting of eight informative digital modules, this programme teaches Stonebridge College students everything they need to know about spreadsheets, databases, operation systems, security and much more.

Who should study this course?

This home learning qualification has been specifically designed for individuals who are looking to develop their IT abilities. Whether they plan to use their new skills at home, in the workplace, or as a basis for further study, this course can set them on their way.

Students are not required to have any IT skills or qualifications before they enrol on this course. However, if they do plan to study the material online, we would recommend that they have a basic knowledge of computers first.

What happens after the course?

On successful completion of this home study qualification, students will be awarded with a Level 3 certificate in IT. This certificate will prove to employers that the student is comfortable using certain software, and that they are technologically aware.

The course may also prove useful if students want to progress to higher level study in this area. Degrees in computer science and IT are highly valued by employers in today’s society. Careers for IT professional include but are not limited to:

  • Web designer
  • Web developer
  • SEO specialist

On completion of your course, you will receive two certificates:

Certificate 1 is issued by Stonebridge Associated Colleges: Information Technology Diploma

Certificate 2 is issued by ABC Awards: Level 3 Information Technology Certificate of Achievement

At the end of this course successful learners will receive a Certificate of Achievement by ABC Awards and a Learner Unit Summary (which lists the details of all the units you have completed as part of your course).

The course has been endorsed under the ABC Awards’ Quality Licence Scheme. This means that Stonebridge Associated Colleges have undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet certain quality criteria. The completion of this course alone does not lead to an Ofqual regulated qualification but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills towards regulated qualifications in the future. The unit summary can be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this sector. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 3 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of difficulty involved in successful completion by the learner.

The course itself has been designed by Stonebridge Associated Colleges to meet specific learners’ or employers’ requirements. ABC Awards’ endorsement involves a robust and rigorous quality audit by external inspectors to ensure quality is consistently met. A regular review of courses is carried out as part of the endorsement process.

Professional Membership

On completion of this course you will be eligible to join the following Professional Associations(s):

Anyone who is studying for or has completed a course endorsed by an Ofqual approved awarding body is eligible to join Qualifications Register.  The Qualifications Register (QR) is an independent register that aims to serve both members of the public and those professionals who hold recognised qualifications.

QR's primary aim is to provide transparency to members of the public and employers. The QR is a searchable database that allows them to find a practitioner and view the relevant qualification and endorsements the practitioner holds. The member of the public is then able to make an informed decision in relation to the suitability of the practitioner.  QR also tracks whether practitioners have insurance, again something that is useful for members of the public.  QR can also help professionals gain insurance or find professional indemnity cover.  Click here to find out more.

Members of the public can check an independent source with complete confidence that the practitioner has the qualification(s) they claim to have and that any additional CPD the practitioner has, is verified and quality assured to make sure that the CPD is being done on a regular basis. QR tracks a practitioners endorsed CPD (in unison with our CPD accreditation partner Lifetime Awarding) and other key signals to help members of the public and employers to come to a more informed decision about the professional they intend to use. This is an enormously valuable signal that's increasingly important as business becomes more deregulated and privatised.

For practitioners QR helps you market your skills, endorsements and feedback transparently to a wider audience. It also gives you access to a community to help make you more able to progress and succeed in your field of expertise.  Click here to find out more.
