Course Overview

The course will help you build up a portfolio of coursework and experience to support your future career. You will learn about topics such as the online world, website software and computer networks.

The course includes a wide range of activities which include role plays, presentations and practical sessions which lend themselves to real life projects. These projects can include installing computer hardware and software, designing and creating websites and games including an introduction to basic coding.

We have fantastic, state of the art resources! You will be taught in well-equipped classrooms, with interactive whiteboards and the latest technology, including class ipads and our virtual learning environment.

We also have a very well equipped library and learning resource centre with plenty of computers for independent study and amazing library facilities.
