Ara Computing for Free Academic Team Leader Des Hoogervorst says that learning how to use digital technology and operate online is now a necessity. “Technology, the workforce and education are evolving. Through this new programme, we work with students to build their confidence with technology step-by-step. Then we show them how they can use it to discover information and come up with solutions.” The certificate introduces students to the types of tools commonly used in a business environment. Students can then apply this knowledge to the specific tools used in their workplace and adapt to new ones as technology advances. One of the advantages about studying through Computing for Free is the community that students become part of. The Level 3 certificate includes an online forum where students can share their insights as they progress through the course. “This experience will enable students to have confident conversations in a digital work environment. By interacting with people from different industries and backgrounds, students will also learn more about the digital business world.” The qualification covers fundamental digital skills, such as the use of different mobile devices and how to connect these to WiFi and Bluetooth. Students will explore the privacy and security implications of different types of filing systems and file sharing software, including cloud-based storage. Experiencing tools such as Microsoft Office, online presentations, basic HTML editing suites and social media will give students a wide understanding of the digital activities carried out in most businesses. The programme has no fees, is self-paced and flexible. Students can start at any time of the year and can choose to study from home or at one of the Ara Computing for Free locations in Christchurch or Timaru. Enrolments are open now. Computing for Free focuses on digital skills Ara Institute of Canterbury is preparing students to operate in the digital workplace through Computing for Free. New qualifications are being introduced this year, with a focus on digital literacy. Computing for Free Manager Peter Nock says that the new qualifications reflect today’s digital business environment. They are delivered primarily online and encourage digital collaboration and problem solving. The New Zealand Certificate in Computing Level 3 (Intermediate User) is open for enrolment now and equips students with the knowledge to use a broad range of technology to their advantage. “Rather than just teaching students to use specific software well, this qualification encourages them to become independent thinkers. They will learn to use technology to problem solve and come up with their own solutions, instead of relying on a textbook or their tutor.” While some familiarity with computing is needed to get started, beginners can complete some of Computing for Free’s non-assessed courses as a stepping-stone to build their basic skills and confidence first. “It doesn’t matter what level of knowledge you have, just come in and talk to us and we can come up with a pathway to suit you. We’re here to support you to fill in the gaps.” With 90% of the course content delivered online, the Level 3 qualification is highly flexible. Students can fit study in around their work and family commitments, and progress at their own pace. They can choose to study from home, the office, or at one of our Computing for Free locations in Christchurch or Timaru. A Level 4 qualification will also be introduced in 2017 for people who want to further their skills. The New Zealand Certificate in Computing Level 4 (Advanced User) will give students the expertise to analyse more complex data and become more efficient at doing business using technology.
