Following a very productive partner meeting in London (June, 2016), the content for the IT Taster Course has been chosen. Tecnalia presented the research report they had produced, part of which detailed some of the most currently in demand IT skills in Europe. This, along with FIT's IT Skills Audit helped the Consortium to choose subjects we felt would be the most useful and interesting to the young people who will eventually complete the IT Taster Course. The modules are as follows:

  1. Introduction to IT (compulsory subject)
  2. Fundamentals of programming (compulsory subject)
  3. Web development
  4. Mobile apps
  5. Computer network fundamentals
  6. Digital marketing
  7. Future of IT
  8. Gaming and animation
  9. Robotics

We are currently in the process of producing these modules and they will be available on the website once completed. In the meantime, if you have any questions or queries about the project, please do not hesitate to contact Emma Beatty (Project Coordinator) at emmabeatty@fit.ie.
