Overview

Information Technology is about using computers to complete tasks found in the workplace. The 21st Century is continuing the IT revolution that has changed the way we carry out business, communicate, spend our leisure time and learn. Many jobs today cannot be carried out effectively without the use of a computer.

Can you name a business or company that doesn’t use a computer in some way for its everyday functions and activities?

If you are interested in a career in IT or a related field, then this one-year course will give you a good understanding across a broad range of IT topics.

You should normally have achieved a grade 3 profile at GCSE, including a 3 or higher in either Mathematics or English. For GCSEs which remain with the old grading system, a grade 3 is equivalent to a grade D.

To study this course, you should have an interest in technical subjects.

At HSDC Alton on the CTEC Level 2 Technical Diploma in IT you will study:

  • Communication and Employability Skills
  • Doing Business Online
  • Computer Animation
  • Supporting organisations with IT
  • Digital Graphics
  • Multimedia Design

My experience at the college was enjoyable and productive, with thoroughly helpful people surrounding you, an excellent experience. I wasn’t expecting it to be as good as it was, with the work shop time and experience I had, it was a great two years preparing me for the next stage.

Edward Smith, BTEC student

The college is a bright and happy place, everyone is kind and friendly to each other.

I got into both of the universities I wanted to. It happens so fast and it’s an amazing feeling when you think that all of the work you’ve done has paid off in the best way possible.
