New Courses offerings for 2018

 

September 2017

Computer Power Plus will launch three new Level 6 programmes of study in 2018.
 
CPP will offer the New Zealand Diploma in Networking, New Zealand Diploma in Systems Administration and New Zealand Diploma in Software Development*.
 
These new programmes of study are designed to meet the demands of the ever-changing ICT industry and will replace two previous programmes, which were removed due to a mandatory review.
 
The programmes have clear objectives and will equip students with the required skills to make an impact in the industry.
Programme description
 
New Zealand Diploma in Networking - The aim of this programme is to provide students with the opportunity to achieve a qualification in IT networking, which meets industry needs for appropriately-qualified IT employees.
 
New Zealand Diploma in Systems Administration - The aim of this programme is to provide students with the opportunity to achieve a qualification in systems administration, which meets industry needs for appropriately-qualified IT employees.
 
New Zealand Diploma in Software Development - The aim of this programme is to provide students with the opportunity to achieve a qualification in software development, which meets industry needs for appropriately-qualified IT employees.
 
As part of the planning process, CPP held a Hui at their Wellington office in June to develop the new qualifications.
Members of the Curriculum Development Team attended the event and General Manager Jay Bocock laid down the challenge for the team.
 
He opened the Hui by asking them to develop new initiatives that are “vibrant, energising, with engaging content and to base curriculum design decisions on facts”.
 
CPP’s vision of developing content is that it positively engages students and enthuses tutors, while industry links are used to build relevance to get students exposed to IT.
 
In addition to gaining specific discipline-related knowledge and skills, these programmes emphasize the development of transferable soft skills that are required for success in the workplace.
 
This philosophy has a commitment to learning employability skills such as: Positive attitude, communication, teamwork, self-management, a willingness to learn, thinking skills and resilience.
 
These new programmes of study also align with CPP’s learning environment.
 
That environment is based on the concept of ako, a respectful reciprocal relationship that nurtures and sustains a shared commitment to learning. This enables students to achieve their learning goals and develop the skills and attributes valued by society and employers. Knowledge and skills are integrated and practised within an environment that expects all students to be honest, trustworthy, courteous, conscientious, well-presented and respectful of diversity. CPP expects students to achieve success in their learning.

 

* Programmes are subject to NZQA approval.
