West Coast Trades Academy

Computer Programming & Web Design Level 2 & 3

How do you solve the problem of getting young people out of school who are digitally trained and into a career that involves technology when they haven’t had any work experience? We’ve cracked it!

This is a new innovative programme from Tai Poutini Polytechnic and Kiwi IT company Fusion, co-creating digital learning to prepare you for the 21st century digital workforce.

Once a week you will attend your computer programming and web design course at Tai Poutini Polytechnic in Greymouth, plus you are invited to attend a planned work experience programme when you reach year 2 and 3 of the programme.

This joint delivery of our programme is intended to provide you with engaging and tactile and practical training with a real pathway to employment.

Students that excel in the 3 year course, will be invited to apply for the full Fusion Intern Pathway, becoming employed by Fusion part-time whilst they continue onto approved tertiary training in Technology Diplomas aligned with Fusion. You will be mentored and personally trained by the Fusion team, gaining invaluable practical experience improving their ability to gain future employment with Fusion or into the wider technology industry.
