Do you want to work in IT, computing or web-design? Do you enjoy solving technological problems?

BTEC IT will provide you with an in-depth understanding of the fundamental principles of information technology systems and their role in supporting organisations to manage information. Optional units will include areas such as:
• Website Development
• Cyber Security and Incident Management
• Computer Games Development
• Digital 2D and 3D Graphics

You will benefit from opportunities for trips and visits, as well as collaborative work with local universities.

If you are confident that your future lies in the IT sector, we recommend completing an Extended Diploma, but if you would rather keep your options open, a BTEC in IT also works well alongside other BTEC subjects, such as Business or Creative Digital Media Production.

How can I STANDOUT with IT after college?

This course is a great stepping stone to university, apprenticeships or employment. You will find yourself well-prepared to begin a career in a wide range of roles, from ethical hacking in the banking industry, to website and logistics management for large retail organisations.
