Postgraduate Certificate in Information Technology 

I am interested in leveraging technology to improve the way we do business, so when I received a scholarship from my employer, Foodstuffs North Island, I decided to pursue a qualification that would equip me with the technical skills to deliver innovation. By completing the Postgraduate Certificate in Information Technology I wanted to be able to lead the delivery of technology-centric projects that would make a significant difference to the business.

The best thing about the PGCert is that it is current, practical and well-executed. A week after completing the Programming for Web Technology course, I was able to code, commit and deploy an enhancement to our web app. I can now talk confidently with our developers and architects as I am speaking the same language.

A highlight since completing my studies has been receiving a thank you note for driving innovation in the ways we work across our department and with suppliers. It felt like a confirmation of my long-term career goal of being an innovator.

I believe that if you are interested in technology and have the drive to take your career to the next level, take the challenge of upskilling with an ICT Graduate School qualification. You will be rewarded with opportunities.
