Whose ICT A-level students pester us with coursework questions about UKITA and so caused us to make up this page for answers for them and other Schools and Colleges UK-wide!

It’s gratifying  to see courses that include the professional aspects of the smaller companies in the IT, Digital and Tech economy. We need young people to be seeing our industry as a potential place for them to launch successful  careers in the near future!
