ITB launches its first ‘Learn and Work’ Programme in Networking Technologies

It’s not all about Points as ITB launches its first ‘Learn and Work’ Programme in Networking Technologies – a full time course combining industry work placement and hands on third level learning

In response to demands from companies in the ICT sector and increasing interest in technology programmes amongst school leavers and mature students, the Institute of Technology Blanchardstown’s (ITB) Department of Informatics is today launching a new programme in Networking Technologies – ‘Higher Certificate in Science in Computing’. The ‘Higher Certificate in Science in Computing’ is a new innovative third level programme that has been designed with industry as it combines in-company placement with up to date technical skills that are currently very much in demand.

The Programme will take place over a two year period with over 50% of the student’s time being spent applying their knowledge whilst learning new applied skills in the workplace through a work placement.  Each student will spend four months studying in ITB at the beginning of Year One and Year Two learning the theory and skills required in the workplace.  During the following eight months each year, students will then spend 80% of their time applying these skills and knowledge within the work environment.

Interested applicants are welcome to our next Open Evening on Thursday 14th April from 5 – 7pm at the Institute of Technology Blanchardstown
