This book supports trainee teachers in the Lifelong Learning Sector in the assessment of their knowledge of ICT. A self-audit section is included to help trainees understand their level of competence and confidence and will help them identify any gaps in their knowledge and skills. This is followed by exercises and activities to support and enhance learning. The book covers all the content of the LLUK standards for the minimum core for information and communication technology. Coverage and assessment of the core have to be embedded in all Certificate and Diploma courses leading to QTLS and ATLS status.
