IT & Computing

IT & Computing

Description


Within IT & Computing we offer a range of courses and qualifications, from IT Users, Web and Software Development as well as Networking and eCommerce in both Apprenticeships and stand-alone qualifications.

Our qualified and experienced tutors and assessors will guide you every step of the way, giving you the skills to excel and progress.

Key Features

  • Gain an accredited qualification awarded by City & Guilds or Edexcel

  • Earn while you’re learning

  • Full support from our tutors and assessors

What’s involved

If you decide that an apprenticeship is the route for you then it will last for around 12 months. We will meet the needs of both yourself and the employer to deliver on the job training at your placement and off the job training at our fully equipped learning center in Speke. At the end of the course you will receive an industry recognised qualification from City and Guilds or Edexcel.

The apprenticeship is generally split into three main components: the first, where one of our tutors will come out to your workplace and observe and assess the skills you have gained whilst working; the second part contains all the theory behind why you do the things you do in the workplace and finally the Maths, English and ICT support, if they are required and depending upon your situation you may not need to do this part.

The IT Users qualifications are ideal for office staff and people who use computers and IT everyday; where-as the IT Professional qualifications are more technical and can be tailored to suit Web Development, Networking or Software Development tracks.

Funding

Due to the funding eligibility rules, from the Skills Funding Agency, it is best to speak with one of our advisers, but as a quick guide, based on age:

16-18 – We can usually offer Apprenticeships fully funded for these qualifications.

19+ – Depending on your situation and prior qualifications we have a wide range of funding options including fully funded to student loans that you only pay back when you earn over £21,000 a year (further details).

Entry requirements

None of these qualifications have entry requirements, although we recommend for the Level 4 qualifications that you have relevant experience.

We would recommend getting in touch with us and one of our helpful recruitment team can discuss the qualifications with you and find one that fits your requirements.

Progression

All of our qualifications have excellent progression opportunities, whether you are completing your Level 2 and looking to progress onto the higher levels or you’re finishing your Level 4 and looking to progress onto a University degree course – our tutors and assessors will help you every step of the way.
