IT: Level 3 Starter Pack


Scenario : You have started a new job as a graphic designer.

As a new member of staff you have been given £1700 to spend on a new computer and display.  Before you can order the PC, you must draft an email to the IT Purchasing Manager explaining the specification of machine you require.    You should describe the role of hardware components, which should include an appropriate example where necessary (you need only provide one example per point):

  • graphics card
  • memory – e.g. RAM
  • processor
  • hard drive
  • mouse
  • webcam
  • monitor

Save your email as a word document and bring it to your first lesson.

The resources below are here to help you with this session. The documents can be downloaded to your device and web links can be viewed online. 

What to do when you're finished ?

Keep a copy of your work safe until your first days at college. Bring it with you for your first lesson in this subject.
