I.T. or Information Technology focuses on working with computers. So many things in life revolve around being able to use a computer: from typing a C.V. to looking up a bus timetable.
This course has been designed to provide you with a strong foundation in computers and office applications. The main subjects offered are Computer Literacy, I.T. Skills and Computer Applications such as Word Processing, Spreadsheets, Databases and Graphics. However, also included is a range of additional modules such as Workplace Safety, Personal Effectiveness and Work Experience.
On completion of this course, you will be awarded a QQI (FETAC) major award at level 3 called Employability Skills or at level 4 called Information and Communications Technology. These awards will enable you to pursue work options in office and business administration. Completing a major award at Level 4 will also enable you to continue into further education and training in many colleges. Whatever you choose to do, you will be equipped with the skills necessary to succeed in the area of I.T.

”I joined the I.T. course in September 2013. It was one of the best decisions I have made as I learned a lot of new things about using computers. The staff at the training were very respectful, they treat you the way you deserve to be treated. I completed my work experience module and got a job from this.
I would definitely recommend this place -I made lots of friends, nobody judge you, the building is very clean and tidy and the food is very nice.”
Past I.T / Office Skills Learner
I joined the I.T. course in September 2014. I thought I knew everything about computers but I was wrong until I got in here. I did not expect Blanchardstown CTC to be one of the nicest places I have ever been in and it is not hard to make friends. This is one of those places that you can feel comfortable and get along with people you would not think you could. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone because it is one of those places that nobody will judge you and you will get fed as well!
I can happily say, a year later and with my course completed, it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. In the past year I completed a FETAC Level 4 Major Award, greatly expanded my art portfolio and I was recently accepted into Ballyfermot College of Further Education.
This would have been impossible without the support of the staff, who are always ready to help in any way they can. They treat everyone equally and talk to everybody as adults which creates an open and creative atmosphere, one I have greatly benefitted from. I would highly recommend this course to any young person who is unemployed, or anybody who’d like to broaden their education or employment prospects.
My time in Blanch CTC has given me the kick I need to be invested in my education again and I have Killian and the rest of the staff to thank.”

I joined the I.T. course in Blanchardstown CTC in September 2014. It was one of the best decisions I have made in life so far. I have come a long way since joining the centre and have met a lot of great people. The staff are such nice and respectable people they make you feel welcome and try their best to help you with anything you need! I would highly recommend Blanchardstown CTC as I have met a lot of new people and it is a very clean, tidy place with great courses and great staff.
