Whether they plan to use their new skills at home, in the workplace, or as a basis for further study, this course can set them on their way. Students are not required to have any IT skills or qualifications before they enrol on this course. However, if they do plan to study the material online, we would recommend that they have a basic knowledge of computers first.
