Since completing a degree in computer science, I went on to teaching and have done this for many years. I am now working in a secondary school teaching computer science to KS4. Over the years I have developed resources that I have used in the classroom and know how difficult it can be to find suitable resources. I thought it would be great to share these.

This is a course for ICT Functional Skills. I used this with 17 to 18 year olds in further education. I have included all teacher PowerPoint presentations, worksheets and the scheme of work. The units included are: Unit 1 Making the most of your computer Unit 2 Managing Information - Passwords and viruses Unit 3 Finding and selecting information Unit 4 to 7 Excel Spreadsheets (Basic Formulas, IF Functions, Absolute function, Lookup formula) Unit 8 Working with Microsoft Word Unit 9 Combining and presenting information Unit 10 Using ICT to communicate I hope that you will find this helpful in the classroom. All presentations are easily adaptable as well the worksheets. Some of the Excel worksheets have been used on older versions of Excel, however they have recently been checked to the most updated version of Excel and do work fine.

I have developed a project called Alpine Snow School Project - This project enables students to develop a wide range of skills by researching, developing a poster, presentation, excel spreadsheet tasks including SUM, MIN, MAX, Average, IF function, Lookup Function, Absolute as well as general ICT questions.
