Applied ICT prepares students for a world increasingly dominated by the use of ICT systems. It is an ideal subject for students who want a broad education in ICT as well as those looking to develop skills needed in a vocational or work context. The course motivates students to achieve the best they can and empowers them to take charge of their own learning and development. Not only do students gain knowledge and understanding about information and communication technologies, but equal emphasis is also placed on the 'doing'. Applied ICT's practical and skills-based approach ensures that students develop a real understanding of ICT that directly relates to the needs of employers.
