IT, Digital Skills and Computer Science Courses at DCG

IT, digital and computing skills are now essential in practically every industry – and demand for those skills will only increase. Programming, networking, cyber security, software development, e-commerce, app design, administration … DCG will give you the technical excellence you need to upgrade your future.

You’ll get to grips with cutting-edge technology and software in an outstanding learning environment. We were among the first institutions worldwide to become a Microsoft Showcase College and we belong to the Fujitsu Digital Champions programme.

For those just setting out in today’s fast-paced digital economy, we’ve led the way in introducing Digital T Levels, which feature substantial work experience. Alongside technical know-how, you’ll gain skills like project management and analysis to take you far in roles from IT support engineer to digital marketer, software programmer to systems security manager. As employers are increasingly seeking candidates with higher qualifications, you could even advance to our Foundation Degree in Computing.

Our experts also run popular short courses for anyone keen to develop their IT abilities – whether familiarising themselves with office software, seeking CCNA qualifications, harnessing the power of Microsoft SQL Server or exploring cyber security and data protection.
