Build a career in the technology industry.
Employer demand for digital technology skills and knowledge is increasing, and non-digital technology companies are becoming more reliant on digital technology specialists as business requirements evolve. Skills shortages in key areas of the digital economy mean there are many different IT careers available for people with the relevant qualifications and experience.
Key growth areas within the IT and computing industry include social and digital media, data protection, cyber security, games design, website development and cloud/mobile technologies. The south-east of England is home to many global IT companies, so you will be well placed for job opportunities and career prospects.
At an Institute of Technology, you could complete an apprenticeship or a Higher National Certificate (HNC) qualification that has been designed in collaboration with employers, which ensures you have the skills and knowledge they are looking for in their next recruit!
