Information Technology is fast becoming one of the most sought-after proficiencies in the modern workplace.

Computing and IT skills are essential in almost all career paths; in New Zealand, several occupations within the IT category are on Immigration New Zealand’s Essential Skills lists. Many are also specified on the Long Term Skill Shortage list; on average, there are between 2,000 and 3,000 roles in Information Technology regularly advertised in New Zealand.

Incorporating both hands-on training and theoretical knowledge, our IT programmes ensure graduates have skills that are attractive to global employers. Regular industry visits are combined with first-class teaching, to provide students with a valuable addition to their CV or job application.

All students are issued with their own laptop, and receive free Microsoft software.
