Dual Enrolment programmes are FREE if you're in Years 11, 12 or 13 and a great way to earn NCEA credits and get a feel for tertiary study, while you’re still at school.

Our aim in this course is to introduce you to the interesting world of computing study through a school programme that will equip and inspire you to take the next step toward building your career.

We will cover a wide variety of topics through completing industry-relevant projects over the year, which will give you an insight into what it is like to work in the IT industry.

This programme is delivered one day per week (Thursdays 9:00am - 2:30pm).
