IT usage is becoming increasingly prevalent in day-to-day life, as people become progressively dependent on their digital devices. We’re in the 21st century and today everything’s about technology. In 2018, 64% of adults described the internet as ‘an essential part of their life’. If you’re fascinated by the technology world, why not take it a step further and study an IT course?
As technology progresses the need for IT professionals will only increase. The better your skill set the more in demand your expertise will be. With jobs being so scarce, the IT industry continues to show a promising demand trend. At the end of 2020, a Tech Nation report revealed that 1 in 10 UK job vacancies are IT roles. They estimated that if the growth continued at the same rate, there would be 100,000 jobs available per month before the end of June 2021.
Studying IT you will develop practical skills, such as programing, database security and networks. IT is great at helping you build project management and numeracy skills, and it will also encourage you to think logically in order to solve problems.
