Course summary

The Foundation Degree in Computing forms the core of our Higher Level Apprenticeship (HLA) program which provides a clear and achievable progression route enabling you to train to a high level whilst gaining a professional qualification. Upon successful interview, you will be placed with a company for four days a week while attending college one day a week.

Over a period of three years, you will work towards the achievement of a Foundation Degree in Computing. The HLA will also provide the opportunity to work on live projects within an IT company and hence gain work-based learning experience while developing the transferable skills essential to success in the industry.

This programme will meet your requirements for personal and intellectual development and will open up new career avenues within the IT sector or provide you with a pathway to continue your studies at university.

There are approximately 360 hours per year student contact time, including blended delivery, over a three year period. Students are required to attend Southern Regional College’s Portadown Campus during term-time, one full day per week. The remaining 4 days will be based with an employer.

There is an expectation of independent study. All staff delivering on this programme is highly experienced with an extensive level of skill set across all computing disciplines.
