It will advance your problem-solving skills and give you an introduction to this rapidly expanding industry. Focusing on using software, you'll cover all aspects of computer systems and carry out basic installation and configuration. You'll learn how to design and create databases, edit computer-generated images and develop websites, video and other assets. The units will develop your team work skills applied to computing and IT.

All units are assessed by coursework, using assignments featuring realistic work-based projects that will challenge and boost your understanding of IT. You will also be assessed via exams. After successful completion of this course, you can progress on to our Level 3 IT course to deepen your understanding and improve your job prospects.
