L1 Computer Science
Teacher in Charge: Mr C. Habberton
Students will learn how to create digital solutions for real world problems.
Key areas of learning include:
- Computational Thinking
- Project Management
- Desktop/Mobile Application Development (C#, Python, Java)
- Database Queries (SQL)
- User Experience & User Interface Design
- Database Administration
In a day and age where digital technology is fundamental to all industries, it is vital that our students move from being users of technology to creators of technology in order for them to excel in their chosen career. Due to lack of human resource in the Software Engineering field, this career has not only got exciting financial benefits but it has job security as well.
Application Development (python, C# and/or Java)
Database Administration (SQL)
UX Design (Web focus / Desktop focus)
Recommended Prior Learning
