About this diploma

This specialised Diploma is intended for anyone with an interest or experience in IT, looking to work in an entry-level development or software testing role.

Utilising your analytical and problem-solving skills in software development as a Software Developer in an organisation, you could be responsible for the development, testing, and maintenance of software programs and code. A great advantage is that developers are employed across a wide spectrum of industry and in many organisations, so opportunities for career enhancement are many and varied.

With this diploma, you will train with the latest industry standard software languages as well as develop other key skills such as communication and leadership skills.

Broken down into clear segments, the format of this course means you get to grips with one skill before starting on the next, and the practical exercises mean you get hands-on experience. You’ll be able to put what you learn into practice immediately.

You can study at times that suit you, and you’ll have access to 24/7 support with our LiveTutor service.
