Our Functional Skills courses are designed to give learners transferable skills in ICT. They will help you to function confidently, effectively and independently in your work and life in general. Functional Skills courses at STC are usually embedded into other programmes of study rather than taught as standalone qualifications, ensuring that they are industry relevant and useful in the context of the course or apprenticeship you are taking. However, ICT is also available as a standalone course.
