Information Technology emphasises problem solving and team work skills for a rapidly changing society. A knowledge of information technology is becoming more and more necessary for daily life at home, work and in education. Just one of the units will give you invaluable skills for the workplace, further study or personal use. A full course will give you good preparation for university study.
Within the IT course, there are a number of pathways available, catering for a wide range of student interests. Students may choose to follow a distinct pathway, or they may combine units from different pathways.
The full course gives you strong preparation for further study at university or CIT. Over the two years you may receive a Certificate 2 in Information Technology, a nationally accredited Vocational Qualification, and work towards a Certificate 3. This provides you with advanced standing or credit towards further studies.
The four streams available cater to student's interests and aspirations.
- Applications - IT concepts, Publishing and Databases, Spreadsheets and Presentations;
- Programming - Program Design using Java and Flash Actionscript.
Students may also undertake research and projects units.
