The aim of this short course is to provide learners with the knowledge, skills, and competence to create software applications. This can be especially beneficial as numerous reports such as Ireland’s National Skills Strategy 2025 point to the need for people with skills in these areas. By combining technical skills with problem solving techniques this course gives the student an excellent foundation and effectively delivers core technology skills in programming.
The course gives learners the fundamental knowledge needed to enter into the computing industry, or to progress on to further higher education courses. This course is designed with flexibility in mind, allowing learners to work through bespoke video content and guided tutorials during the week, with a live online practical class on one evening following the videobased material and exercises. Self-paced content is broken into small manageable chunks, and live sessions are designed for live questions and answers based around industry issues and practical problems.
