    Just a question about the "trainee ICT Technician" it states that applicants should possess good ICT skills, well surely a "trainee" is just someone who is starting to learn about ICT so possibly would not have good ICT skills or is it they want someone who is already a skilled ICT technician to take lower pay?
    It just seems every trainee ICT job you look at requires good ICT skills already it would be like advertising for a "trainee baker " and the pre-requisite required would be good baking skills funny ain't it.

    I would expect any budding technician to have good ICT skills, what I wouldn't expect is for them to have good technician skills, that's where the training comes in.

    Good I.C.T skills IMO is perhaps someone who knows how to put together a computer, knows how it works, maybe has gone through A-Level ICT courses and has at least some sort of basic networking knowledge?

    I probably wouldn't even go that far Jiser. I'd say for a trainee technician I'd be happy with

    1) some evidence of an interest in the subject. This might be experience of building basic systems - it might not, perhaps a GCSE in an IT related subject - Not necersarilly caring through to A-Level. Or - 'I installed Linux on my home pc'. Or - I helped out with 'web page xyz.com'.

    2) can navigate around Windows and use any basic App without asking how to load/print/save a document

    3) can search google/use the internet.

    We can teach them the rest so long as the willingness and ability to learn is there.

    @stevenewman:
    Just a question?
    Why would you require good ICT skills rather than technical skills?
    I have found that people who have reasonable ICT skills are completely useless when it comes to technical issues as they are not on the same wavelength more academic, which really when you look at teachers is the same thing (not to discredit teachers just making an assimilation) so this still poses the question though why do they need these pre-requisite skills in the first place as i have mentioned in previous post, we would not expect a "trainee butcher" for instance to have good killer instincts nor a "trainee banker" to have good monetary skills would we?

    I would expect them to be able to use a computer and have a basic knowledge of (say) windows, and how to install software, change a mouse etc in the same way that I would expect a trainee baker to have a knowledge of ingredients, the concepts of following a recipe, a butcher to have an idea of which end of a pig is which, and a banker to have a certain level of numeracy.

    I wouldn't expect them to know the ins and outs of AD, how to install Exchange, How to bake and ice a wedding cake or how to prepare a crown of lamb. These are the particular skills relevant to the post that would be taught to the trainee.
