Welcome to Technologies (Business Education and Computing Science)

Our department slogan is “developing your skills, making you employable” as our courses play an important role in preparing students for employment both by extending their understanding of business and also how IT is used and applied in all aspects of society.

In both Business Education and Computing, we use group work, investigations and student presentations to develop confidence and communication skills. In addition we are keen to develop students skills in problem solving, literacy, numeracy and creativity, all essential skills that will make students more employable and benefit those that wish to go onto further or higher education.
