The Process


To begin your programme, you will study courses which are industry and internationally recognised as being necessary and relevant to begin a career as an IT Field Technician.

Next you will study both CompTIA A+ courses. These courses will teach you the basics of what is needed to work in IT as a technician. CompTIA A+ is recognised internationally as the standard certification for entry level IT positions . This will ensure you have the essential skills needed to succeed and then qualify for the 5 day workshop with our IT contract partner. After completing each of the CompTIA A+ courses you will again be asked to complete an online assessment to demonstrate your competency and understanding.

Upon successfully passing our online assessments, you are now ready to attend the practical workshop with our IT contractor.

Throughout your studies you will be supported by your personalised expert mentor and tutor, to ensure success during your studies.

Our IT contract partner does not require you to complete the official CompTIA exams and therefore these are not included within the programme. However, as completion of the courses and our online assessments demostrates you are exam ready, we do highly recommend that you sit the official CompTIA exams.

Gain Experience

This workshop will enable you to demonstrate that you are able to put your theoretical knowledge into practice as well as demonstrating to our IT contracting partner that you are competent and ready to work for them. At the end of the workshop our IT contracting partner will confirm whether you have been successful and then offer you a contract position.

Start Working

Our IT contract partner will advise you of the availability of their next contract which typically will be within 3-4 weeks.

Typically the work involved will be remote and field based. Many of the contract positions through our IT contracting partner evolve through time into full time permanent positions.
