The Level 3 courses are free for anyone aged 19 and over studying their first full Level 3 qualification. Free study or reduced fees may be available for the other courses and those aged 24 and over can apply for an Advanced Learner Loan.

The College also offers online Microsoft Access, Excel, Excel Expert, Outlook, PowerPoint and Word courses.

Leanne Brunt, Head of Creative and Digital Industries at the College, said:

“Our courses are a great way to boost your chances of progressing in your career, whether you are looking to increase your overall digital abilities or work in a specific area of IT. As courses are studied part-time or online, you can fit them around your existing commitments.

“Our Level 3 courses are free if you’re studying your first qualification at that level and you could also get free study or reduced fees for the other courses, so give us a call and we can discuss this further.
