Why study this course?

This programme has been designed to meet industry requirements and take learners from complete beginners to job ready.

Businesses have an increased reliance on digital technologies, and digital skills are a key requirement for adults in the West Midlands.  With a shortage of skilled developers, the Level 5 Diploma in Web Application Development will upskill a complete beginner to a web programmer.

This programme’s purpose is to upskill those already working in a website development role, but also offer learners with no previous experience in programming, a pathway to employment in this occupational area.

Applicants do not need technical experience to join, and the programme has excellent learner support, tutoring and mentoring.

Those who graduate the programme will be competent to work in the following junior/associate roles: Full Stack Developer; Frontend Developer; Backend Developer; Software Developer; QA Engineer.  They will also be competent to work in a Support Engineer role.

Areas for potential future specialisation/study include Frontend Frameworks; Systems Administration; Data Analytics; QA Engineering; User Experience; Dev Ops Engineering.
