Hi-Tech Route to Glittering Career
KNOWING your way around a computer can make a huge difference to your professional as well as personal life.
Understanding how computers work can also lead you towards an illustrious career in IT.
This is why Sutton Coldfield and Matthew Boulton Colleges are encouraging both sixth form and adult learners to sign up for a range of information technology and computing courses that will improve their employment prospects, as well as help create the next generation of IT professionals.
Running at campuses across north Birmingham, beginner courses will help those who want to learn the basics to develop the confidence to use office packages.
The BTEC and higher education qualifications offered at the colleges will give students the skills and expertise required to become IT server and technical support workers, network administrators, web developers or programmers.
On completion of a degree, careers such as systems analyst, database administrator and systems developer may beckon.
Julie Shanahan, from Birmingham, successfully completed IT beginner qualifications, the CLAIT certificate as well as the ECDL (European Computer Driving Licence) parts 1 and 2 and is now actively seeking office work.
