Are you interested in a career in IT? This is not an easy question as there are so many different areas to choose from in IT! Do you imagine yourself as an animator or graphic designer, 2D or 3D? Are you excited by code and want to explore the world of programming? Are you more business minded and want to be integral in organising data and developing sophisticated Databases or Spreadsheets, or how about social media- web development or marketing through different social platforms? All these options are available when you study through the IT BTEC pathway. We will give you hands-on experience of all the latest industry software plus the opportunities for work experience either in Leeds or abroad.

There are lots of opportunities when studying with us to try employment with local businesses, you can take part in special work opportunities that we have with Leeds City Council, or you can take advantage of the opportunities to do a fully funded 3 week placement in Europe.

We will support you with your options of employment, apprenticeship or HE. You can also combine your studies to have a mixture of Business and IT within our department or specialise in either IT or Business.

If you attend our Curriculum experience sessions you can have an experiment with animation; have a go at creating a short animation that you can export to yourself & maybe use your own voice over? Edit some sound effects, edit graphics and take part in some web development.
