We have a few spaces left on the following programmes – all of which are perfect for anyone interested in working in the tech sector:

  • Software Developer – you know the trusty online banking app you check every day and those streaming services where you can binge the latest season of your favourite show? Software developers created all of them. Developers are the people who write the back-end code needed to make computer programmes run, working collaboratively as part of high-energy teams. On this course you will gain valuable skills which are in high demand including Python Programming, Web Fundamentals, and Cloud Development.
  • Software Tester – to ensure that software created by developers is running as it should be, software testing is crucially important. As a software tester you would be checking the security of applications by testing their vulnerability to attacks, looking for bugs or errors, and making sure products are of high quality and fit for purpose. On this course you will gain valuable skills which are in high demand including Test Engineering, Automation and Testing Techniques.
  • ICT Cloud – Cloud technologies have driven enterprises in all industries toward DevOps and agile methodologies with a lot of big companies such as Amazon, HP, Etsy, Netflix and Adobe using DevOps to undergo a serious culture shift. On this course you will gain valuable skills which are in high demand including Network Security, Cloud Fundamentals and Infrastructure Management.
