About Software & Web

Digital services, software and entertainment products are everywhere, on phones and tablets, laptops, desktop computers in the home or office, televisions, ATMs, virtual assistants  - even some fridges!  We live in an age of the 'smart device'.  All of these devices require initial firmware, software and apps to operate, often then connecting to the internet for the latest updates - meaning that there is more potential for software developers to forge a programming career than ever before.  If you like solving real-world problems with logic, maths or digital design then this could be the area for you.

This sector encompasses a range of digitally creative roles and technologies that deliver software products for use on computers, tablets and mobile phones, as well as in vehicles and in the latest machinery. The skills and interests required for this area are related to coding, web and app technologies and the design and formatting of digital information. 

Social media, apps, websites, computer programs for businesses, digital health services, military and educational systems, instructions for industrial machinery, robots, vehicles, aircraft and ships – as smart technology becomes more and more integrated into modern living, a career in this area is a way to get involved in multiple different job sectors.

Whether you want to be a web developer, software engineer or digital designer, this sector will let you use your planning, testing, mathematical, artistic and creative skills to deliver software that can make a difference to people, entertain the masses or power the businesses and machinery of the modern world. You can explore the future now! 

If you are slightly more drawn to the entertainment applications of software then you might want to explore Video Game Development instead.
