If you want to progress to higher education or employment and do not have the required skills or knowledge, this may be the right course for you!!! With so much investment and heavy reliance on technologies, Computing has become a global industry. With use of Artificial Intelligence and robots, low skill jobs are disappearing and you need to have specialist skills to secure a well-paid and desirable job. Many jobs have a digital element, and it is predicted that within 20 years 90% of all jobs will require some element of digital skills.
