About our IT courses:

Do you want to develop your IT skills? We all need basic IT skills for everyday life, education and employment – EMBS can help you develop the IT skills you need.

We run small, friendly IT classes for all levels of students, from complete beginners to more experienced users. Your tutor will conduct an initial diagnostic with you at the start of your course and will give you clear targets to support you to work towards appropriate level qualifications.

At beginner level, you will learn how to email, use simple search facilities, create documents in Word, add images to documents, edit and format documents and save, store and retrieve data and documents. You will achieve an Entry level Functional Skills qualification.

At intermediate level you will focus on computer basics: working with data, tables, using the internet, communication in IT, managing files on various platforms, formulae and functions, charts and graphs, working with spreadsheets and databases, sorting and editing images and health, safety and security around using computers. You will achieve an Entry 3 Digital Skills or Level 2 ITQ/ECDL qualification.

    «...I not only consider EMBS a college - I also see it as my family.... »

    «I arrived in this country four months ago, without any confidence in my English and really scared to be an independent person at sixteen. I didn't know what my next steps were since the education in my country is really different. One day, my aunt bought me to EMBS. At the beginning I was really insecure as I didn't even know how to use the bus and get there, it made me feel like a child surrounded by grown up people that didn’t understand me at all. Ever since I started to study here, everything negative that I used to feel has changed completely. I’ve got to meet amazing people like Jo and Jane, who took care of me and were concerned about my future. I’ve also got to make amazing friends like Aisha and Abner that always make me laugh and feel positive about life. Of course, this is not the only thing that the EMBS has given me: they also are deeply involved in my education and they help me in any way possible to achieve my purpose, which is go to university and study human rights. If I am being honest, I not only consider EMBS a college - I also see it as my family. »


    «...I really enjoyed my time at EMBS, meeting so many different people and making lots of fun and happy memories.... »

    «Before I came to EMBS I was very shy and often felt very awkward to start conversations with people around me, I never spoke unless I was spoken to but after a few months of being here I gained confidence and was able to communicate with other people comfortably, made good friends and feel like I knew myself. I really enjoyed my time at EMBS, meeting so many different people and making lots of fun and happy memories.»

    «Before I came to EMBS I was very shy and not confident, I used to be very afraid to speak English outside of college. But after several months, EMBS helped me to gain more confidence and especially improve my spoken and written English. The staff are really nice and friendly.»
