Level 2 IT, Computing and Digital Applications (BTEC)
More than 1.5 million people are working within the digital sector, or in digital technology roles in the UK today. The number of digital technology jobs across the UK has grown at more than twice the rate of non-digital technology sectors.
This BTEC First Extended Certificate gives learners the opportunity to gain a broad knowledge and understanding of and develop skills in the information technology sector and some aspects of the creative industries.
