Computer technology is part of everyday life and provides the structure for contemporary living in terms of communication, transport, finance, leisure and much more, whilst digital technology has radically changed the way we live, work and relate to each other. If you want to build a career in computing or IT, a course at Barnfield College will equip you with the most up-to-date industry knowledge and skills.

There’s a wide range of careers available in the IT industry, from software to robotics, databases to websites, and with an impressive success rate on our computing courses, you’ll be well on your way to the role you want.

Through a mix of theoretical and practical learning, you’ll develop a solid general knowledge base across a range of computing topics. You’ll learn how to build computers and networks, design and create interactive programmes, and work with graphics and animation. And we’ll support you to identify your particular areas of interest and specialisms as you prepare to progress to higher education or the workplace.
