Career and Employment Information
This PDA is designed to be suitable for a wide variety of potential candidates - for school leavers as well as for those seeking either to enter a career in IT, or to change to a new IT career path. The award will provide all candidates with the academic, technical and professional skills necessary for employment in the fields of service support and IT systems delivery.
The award is specifically intended for candidates who want to establish or develop an existing IT career as technical or service centre staff, managers or consultants. However, it is equally suitable for those who want to progress their career by further study – after achieving National Qualifications in Computing or Information Systems, perhaps, or prior to studying for a full or part of an HN level award.
Recent experience suggests that mature candidates who have already achieved some vendor qualifications are likely to benefit from studying this type of award.
