South West College encourages those interested in a career in Computing to log on to the School of Computing Webinar, broadcast live via the SWCs YouTube channel, at 7 pm, on Wednesday 1st June.

Computers are part of everything we do. We use them constantly, whether it’s checking the weather, the football scores or the best holiday destinations, and for anyone working in an office, it’s hard to imagine working away from the monitor.

In any conceivable future, computing and IT jobs will continue to be common, with jobs developing in sectors as wide-ranging as agriculture, retail, hairdressing and nursing and as such, it’s a career area that is likely to create more jobs in the coming years; as the sector grows in line with our increasingly digital lives.

For anyone interested in a challenging and rewarding career within new and emerging technologies, the unmissable webinar aims to highlight the wide range of careers available in one of the fastest-growing industries where there are local and global opportunities.

The primary focus of the exclusive webinar is to open current and prospective students' minds to the wide range of Computing and Cyber Security courses available from Level 2 to 6, with Higher Level Apprenticeship (HLA) options and help prospective students decide if a career in the industry is right for them.

It is also a fantastic opportunity for post 16 learners and their parents to get a glimpse of College life, discover the facilities and tech available, and hear from current students. Thus, GCSE and A-Level school leavers can make better-informed choices and gain a more in-depth insight into this exciting and ever-changing sector, boasting an average salary of £33,000.

Sinead McGee, Head of School for Mathematics and Computing at SWC, said:

“We take great pride in offering courses and qualifications that help strengthen the IT sector in our local region. We have a group of highly qualified tutors that offer the best possible education to students who wish to embark on careers in IT and Cyber Security."

For anyone interested in a career in computing, the free webinar will be broadcast live via the SWC YouTube channel on Wednesday 1st June at 7 pm. You can watch it there on any of your devices or by visiting:
