Information Technology Diploma Levels 2 & 3

The competitiveness and productivity of every company is dependent on it having access to the skills it needs – today and in the future. It is essential that individuals and businesses seize the opportunities offered by the rapid development in information technology so that every person is able to actively participate in the e-economy. ITQ is the flexible IT user qualification and training package that can be tailored to ensure that you are trained in just the IT skills that you need. Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber Training offer ITQ qualifications at level 2 and 3 and are aimed at IT Users in a wide range of job roles; the choice of level depends upon your individual responsibilities.

The fundamental difference in ITQ, unlike any other IT User qualification, is that the content can be adjusted to suit the requirements of the workplace and employee, as well as the skills level of your chosen disciplines. In other words, the employer and the individual ends up having ''created'' their own ITQ allowing you to learn and be assessed on tasks that you need to know as part of your job, taking into consideration any existing IT qualifications you have. Your can choose units from a wide range including those listed below.

  • Make selective use of IT
