About this diploma

If you are new to the world of computer programming and are keen to pursue a career in this field, this diploma will help you learn the fundamentals of coding.

If you have an analytical mind and strong problem-solving skills, this could be the right career choice for you.

Smartphones, laptops, PCs, websites, and video games all run digitally scripted programs and, as the digital revolution continues, the reach of computer programming now plays a major role in other frequently used items, such as cars, household appliances, and watches.

With such a widespread growth in the demand for programming, there is a need for knowledgeable, qualified programmers who can not only write software programs but test, develop, and maintain them, as well.

If you’re new to computer programming, the prospect of learning how to write a digital script from scratch could be a daunting prospect. This diploma is designed for those completely new to the profession.

There are four core courses that will introduce you to programming concepts and guide you through the languages we’ll be focusing on --HTML and CSS. You can then select one elective course to complement the core training and that suits your personal aspirations and goals.

Aims and Objectives

This diploma will help anyone new to coding and programming learn how to write the instructions and processes that computer programs and websites follow using HTML and CSS. The course will also prepare you to take the IT Specialist (ITS) exams in order to gain certifications that will formally demonstrate your newly acquired skills.

Courses Included

Programming Fundamentals

This course is an introduction to programming concepts and is ideal for anyone who wishes to learn how to program but doesn't have a background in coding.

Wherever possible our training is tailored to your needs. The cost of our training programmes depend on the course(s) you choose and varies according to duration and breadth. Rest assured we have a number of payment options available to ensure the cost of training is affordable and can be worked alongside your other financial commitments. Common ways people fund their training include: - 

 

Self-Funded: 

  • Flexible payment plans to help you spread the cost* available at many of our centres;
  • You could opt to pay upfront.

 

 

Company Funded:

Requesting funding from your employers needn’t be a daunting task. Many employers support and encourage their employees with their professional development and consider it a worthwhile investment to fund any training required.

What we can help with:

  • Providing a comprehensive training programme outlining learning outcomes
  • Tailored personnel letters
  • Communication with finance departments to arrange payment options (upfront or payment plan*).

 

Funding & Grants:

There may be the opportunity to apply for funded grants that can help towards the cost of training. These include the Skills Development Scotland ITAs and the ReAct programme in Wales. All schemes will have different terms and conditions that will need to be met in order to qualify for a grant and these are managed by each individual centre.

We’d recommend you speak to a Course Advisor in your local centre to find out whether they are registered to offer any such schemes and discuss your requirements further.

 

* Terms and Conditions apply. Speak to a Course Advisor for full information on the options available to you.

 

 

Career Path

Undertaking professional programming training could lead to an exciting and rewarding career. If you’re new to the profession, you will more than likely start in a junior programmer, junior developer, or entry-level software engineer role.

As you gain experience and with additional study, your options will grow and could ultimately lead to careers such as Web Developer, Software Developer, and Game Developer.
