Computing

Our computing courses are project based so you will be hands on from day one and will get to experience real work environments on placements tailored to your skills. You could learn about networking and computer systems, database creation, project management, 3D modelling, games design, app development, e-commerce, web design and development, the online world, digital animation and graphics. These units will be assessed as a combined set of projects linking to job roles in the IT industry. You will also have the opportunity to take part in work experience.
Maybe web design and development is your passion? Whether it is e-commerce, digital animation, cyber security or 3D modelling, our specially designed courses could be your first step into that world.
