Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr C. Habberton

Recommended Prior Learning

It would be advantages for learners to have completed the Year 10 Computer Science course. The principles taught using python will be developed further to meet NCEA level 1 expectations.


Students will learn how to create digital solutions for real world problems. 

Key areas of learning include: 

  1. Computational Thinking
  2. Project Management 
  3. Programming
    1. Desktop/Mobile Development (C#, Python, Java)
    2. Web Development (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP
  4. UX Design
  5. 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.
