Progression/Career Opportunities: Progress to the BTEC National Diploma for IT Practitioners or entry level employment in the IT industry

USP/Did you know?: We cover a wide range of IT topics which naturally lead students on to the BTEC National Diploma course. In addition, students will study the ECDL which is a well recognised, highly regarded IT qualification in its own right.

Students are involved in many activities/trips including Disneyland Paris, BBC, Chelsea FC and Army Teambuilding. A range of guest speakers are also invited to speak to the students each year, to enhance their learning experience.

What our students say: "I would recommend the First Diploma for ICT Practitioners to everyone. My time on the course was very interesting, I learnt a lot and made good friends on the course. I have also gained more self confidence.

The teachers on the course were very helpful and friendly and always willing to help. The ECDL showed me where I needed to improve in the application and by re-sitting my mathematics GCSE I got a better grade. I have now progressed onto the BTEC National Diploma in IT" Emma Pope
