L3 Computer Application Packages

CAP32
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr G. Tuahine

This course provides students with the base knowledge to enable them to use computers in their future studies. It can also help provide an entry into tertiary studies involving software use. It is suitable for those students who have let their study of IT lapse, or need to improve their computer skills before going out into the work force. It is important to realise that Level 3 standards are quite demanding, and you may need to study at Level 2 before attempting Level 3 standards. Students study on an individual basis and need to manage themselves and their work (with teacher help). Students may enter or leave the course according to their needs.

The course consists of 17 Level 3 credits in Web Development, Desktop Published Documents and Programming, extra standards may be offered depending on the student's experience. 

CAP32 is not an UE approved subject, however, some approved standards are available.
