Course summary

The Postgraduate Certificate in Digital Preservation is designed to enhance existing skills in information, library or archive management by training you in the additional skills required for collecting and curating digital information and preparing it for use by individuals and organisations. This Certificate will train you in the complexities of digital asset management: the policies, procedures and governance required to ensure the integrity of digital material over time and ensure you develop the skills and experience to manage digital information for any size of organisation, be it national, governmental or international.

This will prepare you for managerial and strategic roles handing digital information in both academic and professional contexts. In addition to subject-specific skills and knowledge, you will have the opportunity to further develop a set of widely-applicable professional skills to help you in any workplace – digital information-related or otherwise. On completion of this course your general employability will be greatly enhanced to give you the best possible chance of successfully continuing in your chosen career path.

Overview

This Certificate in Digital Preservation is designed to give you a thorough understanding of the workflow, policies, procedures and governance for managing digital information over the long-term. You will go beyond this to identify efficient and productive ways of operating through a thorough understanding of the technical and organisational standards underpinning the management of digital information and the appropriate application of ICT technologies.

By the end of your course of study, you will be able to demonstrate a mastery of the technological processes for information governance and digital preservation. You will achieve this by applying your specialist skills to real-life situations throughout the course and, by making the most of this experiential learning, you will graduate with valuable hands-on experience of this increasingly important subject.

In addition to this first-rate training in digital preservation, you will also nurture a skill set perfect for almost any role in any business or postgraduate workplace. You will be confident in research, analysis and planning, as well as writing, reporting and argument formation to justify your decisions in managing an organisation's most precious commodity: information. These are just some of the skills you will gain which will make you a desirable employee for a wide range of public and private sector organisations and businesses.

Employability
