Computing and digital industries

Nothing is moving faster than technology; turn your interests into an amazing career with endless possibilities. And it’s not just for techies!

A word from us

There are so many employment opportunities in the computing and IT sector; it’s such a rapidly expanding field to study and work in.

Think about your experiences of technology over the past few years.

Brands like Google have expanded on a massive scale.

The rise in technology has driven a rise in digital jobs, and in a fast-paced industry, you can climb the career ladder at a fast pace too.

The digital industry itself is huge, which means that once you start on the digital job ladder there are lots of diverse career paths you can go down from full on technical, to social media marketing.

And at our college you’ll be working with industry-standard software, delivered by industry-savvy staff, so what you learn with us will mean you hit the ground running.

You’ve also grown up in the digital age, so you already have more skills under your belt than you realise: we’ll help you recognise and focus those skills.
