Computing and IT Academy (CITA)

Subject Overview

Computers are everywhere – on your desk, in your phone and even your washing machine! The Computing and IT Academy (CITA) offers courses covering all levels from entry-level courses for beginners to foundation degrees. Our courses are arranged in clearly defined pathways at all levels.

The full-time hardware pathway encompasses courses related to technical support, networking, and computer security and most recently we have added computer forensics to our portfolio of courses.

The full-time software pathway encompasses courses related to web design, programming, games development and e-commerce applications.

To complement our full-time programmes we currently offer Higher Education qualifications in Networking and Web Design which enable students to progress from the full-time pathways to higher level courses.

To complete our portfolio of courses we offer a range of professional development courses. We are an established academy centre for Microsoft, CISCO, Cyberoam, Linux, CompTia and VMWare.
