Business & IT


Business generally covers the areas of marketing, finance, IT, operations, human resources and administration, so often appeals to those who enjoy studying a number of different areas. While technical skills are needed for many roles in IT, employers also want team players, problem-solvers and good communicators. All IT jobs involve some level of technical content, from the technical skills of a software developer to project management roles where communicating with, and organising the people who do hold such technical knowledge, may be more important than actually having the technical skills. Our Business & IT courses will help you prepare for work, develop your existing career, or gain skills whilst working as an apprentice.
This is for you if…
you plan to work in business or run your own business and you enjoy learning practical skills and learning how to apply them.

Career prospects

If you have an ambition to move up the ladder in a company, become an entrepreneur or start your own business then a solid understanding of business principles is a must. For those interested in IT the good news is that employment growth in the IT industry is more than five times faster than the average across England.
