Level 3 IT to FdSc Cyber Security and BSc (Hons) Cyber Security (Top-up)

Joseph said NCD was recommended by his teachers at school.

 He said:

“People spoke well of the college, and it was recommended by my teachers at Consett Academy. I felt comfortable talking to my lecturers and asking questions, and I received 1-1 support to check my progress and to get feedback. I chose to stay at NCD University Centre to study my degree because I had confidence in the teaching I would get with my lecturers and that familiarity along with it being close to home made it an easy decision.

“The degree course made me realise the industry is always changing and this required me to constantly find out new things about the industry. I did a work placement at Derwentside College but worked part-time during my degree. New College Durham has helped me with my education and now I am working with their IT department.”

Joseph plans to progress in the IT industry within cyber security. He is currently working as a User Support Technician for New College Durham.
