The Institute of Technology Blanchardstown’s (ITB) Department of Informatics has opened applications for a new higher certificate in Science in Computing. The two-year ‘learn and work’ programme in network technologies will combine in-company placement with up-to-date network technology skills.

Students taking the course will spend four months studying in ITB at the beginning of both years learning the theory and skills required in the workplace, followed by a placement where they will spend 80% of their time applying these skills and knowledge within the work environment.

Each course will hold 32 place and the selection process involves an aptitude test and interview.

“The learn and work programme will create a practical path for students to acquire in demand skills whilst offering companies access to a motivated, productive new talent pool,” said Dr Mary Meaney, ITB President.

Bernard Hickey operations & service delivery manager, Damovo Ireland, said: “Damovo has identified the learn and work programme from ITB as a perfect fit to enable us to develop the right competence and skills through this accredited programme. In partnership with ITB, Damovo is confident that the trainees will achieve the required skills to quickly become valuable and productive members of the operations team.”

The programme is supported through ICT Ireland Skillnet.
