Learn to support computers, and
- you have potential employment in virtually every industry and every workplace.
No workplace can function today if the Computers don't function - and that fact is both a career and employment opportunity that is not about to go away.
Note that each module in the Qualification - Foundation Diploma in IT Support is a short course in its own right, and may be studied separately.
ACS follows the old fashioned idea that “the student comes first”.
Our staff are told to treat every student as an individual and respond
promptly to their enquiries; and the facilities we have developed and
continue to develop, are all focused on that goal. Facilities include:
- Offices in two time zones (UK and Australia) –which means an international team of academics are responding to students 5 days a week and 16 hours a day.
- An online student room with unique resources that are only available to students studying our courses, including online library.
- Bookshop offering quality downloadable e books
- A data base of 20 million words of unique information written by
our staff over 3 decades that can be drawn upon if needed by academics
for use in supporting our students.
- Systems that ensure assignments are tracked, marked and returned
to students, fast -commonly within a round 1 week & rarely more
than 2 weeks (note: many other colleges take longer).
- The school is active in social networking and encourages students to connect with us and each other.
- No automated handling of student phone enquiries. When you call you get a real person; or leave a message and a real person will call you back within a day, but more commonly within an hour or two.
- No additional charges for extra tutor support over the phone or email.
- Free careers advice for graduates –It is our
policy to provide support and advice to our students even after they
graduate. If a graduate needs help with getting a CV together, or advice
on setting up a business or looking for work; they only need ask.
- The quality of academic staff is higher than many other colleges.
How our Courses Differ
- Courses are continually improved –we invite feedback from all graduates and change courses immediately the need is detected.
- Courses are relevant to the whole world –we try hard to teach
make the learning transferable to any region or country because the
world is increasingly a global economy
- Courses written by our staff, teach different skills to standard
courses; giving a unique mix of skills and knowledge to provide a
career advantage. Do you want an accredited certificate and the same
skills as 100 other job applicants; or one of our courses with skills
that no other applicants have?
- Certificates and diplomas are longer. They teach you more, and
our qualifications have built a reputation amongst academics and
industry as being a very high standard for this reason.
- We are focused on helping you learn in a way that improves your
capacity to understand your discipline, apply knowledge, and continue
learning and developing your capabilities beyond your course.
These things cannot be always said of other colleges.
Study alone can never guarantee career success - but a good education is an important starting point.
Success in a career depends upon many things. A course like this is
an excellent starting point because it provides a foundation for
continued learning, and the means of understanding and dealing with
issues you encounter in the workplace.
When you have completed an ACS course, you will have not only learnt
about the subject, but you will have been prompted to start networking
with experts in the discipline and shown how to approach problems that
confront you in this field.
This and every other industry in today’s world is developing in
unforeseen ways; and while that is unsettling for anyone who wants to be
guaranteed a particular job at the end of a particular course; for
others, this rapidly changing career environment is offering new and
exciting opportunities almost every month.
If you want to do the best that you can in this industry, you need to
recognise that the opportunities that confront you at the end of a
course, are probably different to anything that has even been thought of
when you commence a course.
