Computing (Software and Hardware)

This is a broad course that considers elements of both hardware and software. It provides the perfect introduction to the world of computing and forms a solid foundation for future study. You will learn through both practical activity and theory sessions, which incorporate discussion and research. Our specialist staff will support you in developing the skills necessary to progress in the industry, or to study on higher level courses. Upon completion, you can progress to a Level 2 Computing course, where you can decide which area you would like to specialise in based on your experiences at Level 1.
