This is an innovative third level programme (Higher Certificate in Science) designed by Institute of Technology Blanchardstown with support from ICT Ireland Skillnet, combining in-company placement with the required skills and competencies for today’s high-tech companies.
In response to demands from the ICT Sector and increasing interest in technology programmes amongst school leavers and mature students this new Learn and Work programme will create a connection between the student’s academic life and the world of work.
The Programme will take place over a two year period with over 50% of the student’s time being spent applying their knowledge whilst learning new applied skills in the workplace through a work placement. Each student will spend four months studying in ITB at the beginning of both Year One and Year Two learning the theory and skills required in the workplace. During the following eight months each year, students will then spend 80% of their time applying these skills and knowledge within the work environment.
