Course Overview

This would be of interest to those who are interested in learning how to use Microsoft Access and perhaps have not used it before or have limited skills and would like to learn to make more effective databases. You may wish to develop databases for a club or society, work, or personal use, this course will help you achieve the skills to go on and develop databases that have impact and value.

You will learn the basics features and functions in Access, including:

  • Storage and retrieval
  • Creating databases
  • Entering and editing data
  • Understanding simple queries
  • Run reports
  • Respond to error messages
  • Printing.

You will work through a workbook in the workshop sessions.

  • Work at your own pace (must complete within one year), some learners complete in just a few weeks if they already have some skills in the application
  • Flexible attendance meaning you can fit it in around your other commitments
  • Experienced staff used to supporting learners that are new to applications
  • A recognised BCS qualification at Level 1

Assessment Methods

You will sit an exam in-house at the end of the course; lots of practice to ensure you are ready, with a number of resit opportunities if needed.
