Course description

The Cambridge Technicals in IT have been developed to meet the changing needs of the sector, and prepare your students for the challenges they’ll face in Higher Education or employment. These qualifications aim to develop the students’ knowledge and understanding of the principles of IT and Global Information Systems.

Course content

There are three mandatory units; “Fundamentals of IT”, “Global Information”, and “Computer Networks” and four Vocational Pathways, namely IT Infrastructure Technician, Emerging Digital Technology Practitioner, Application Developed, and Data Analyst. Each Pathway include a wide range of optional units. You will have to follow and achieve one pathway. As much as possible we try to allow the self-motivated student, who can work independently and to deadlines, to choose those optional units. We begin with the mandatory units and assess how well students are able to work well, to then decide on the degree of flexibility that is appropriate.
