With a large majority of people using IT in their jobs today, it makes sense to ensure that staff are using your systems in a cost effective and efficient way. ITQ qualifications within the IT Application Specialist programme are established and recognised as being practical certifications for people who predominantly use computers at work to undertake a variety of tasks.
Whether its writing letters or e-mails to communicate with customers or other businesses, developing spreadsheets to keep a track of your finances, designing powerful presentations or using the internet to advertise and sell your products or services, the ITQ is the right qualification to build a programme of learning and certificate the new skills attained.
There are a wide range of bespoke and specialist software units that can be customised to an organisation’s specific job roles and applications and the flexible unit structure means that it can be adapted for almost any work environment.
At Crown Vocational Training, we offer IT Application Specialist apprenticeships both at Level 2 and Level 3. The majority of training is delivered in the workplace, with some college attendance for workshops. Learning is also supplemented by online sessions.
