Today's businesses produce and handle a mass of information every day, creating the need for skilled people to manage that information in an intelligent and productive way. And for each computer operator there is a programmer and technician, to build and maintain the software and hardware that drives our organisations.

With the majority of today's businesses relying so heavily on computers and the advances being made in modern technology there has never been a more exciting time to enter a business or IT environment.

Games Design and Development
The boundaries of media and IT have all but disappeared with technological advances in computing ever increasing our desire for interactive media and games play. Leaners can choose to develop their talents and creativity digitally through the use of multimedia or to specialise in games design and development.

Progression

Leaners can pursue careers in media, games development, communications, software and hardware development, administration, technical support, computer programming and many more rewarding roles. Leaners can also choose to go onto higher level courses in IT, business, media or games development with a good grounding in their chosen discipline. There are not many professions that do not rely to some extent on IT, and so learners of this area are almost certainly securing their future 'employability'.

Whichever discipline you choose, Kidderminster College, with its highly skilled, industry-trained tutors and up-to-the-minute computer suites equipped with the latest software, provides the ideal training ground for those individuals wishing to pursue a career in the ever-changing world of Information Technology and multimedia.
