About the course
The new BTEC Nationals in Computing are designed for students leaving school and wanting the opportunity to go onto University / Apprenticeships or the world of work.
The course incorporates new relevant technologies and techniques to allow the student to experience them in the world of software and hardware.
The new BTEC Nationals in Computing use a combination of assessment styles to give students the study skills needed to continue their learning and also the confidence to apply their knowledge in the workplace.
Many of our students go on to university to complete different degree courses, such as Games Development, Software Engineering, Computer Science and Network Security.
