The aim of this new programme is to provide students with the opportunity to achieve a qualification in software development which meets industry needs for appropriately qualified information technology (IT) employees.
Upon graduating you will be able to enter employment in a development or testing role, in a range of organisational contexts. These roles may require fundamental coding, scripting, and testing skills, and are less likely to require significant architecture and design skills. You may also be employed in other roles that use programming skills, such as teaching, small business projects; or be self-employed.

This qualification provides the essential core, professional and technical skills required to help you enter the IT industry in an IT Support role.
