NCC DIGI Computing Trailblazers - Age (12-14)
How your kids consume online content is more important than ever, be it games they play, videos they watch, what they look for, and who they communicate with. We want to empowers your children to become creative digital citizens who use the access the internet brings to build themselves up.
We believe this is the best way to defeat cyberbullying, online trolls, and people who use the internet to take advantage of others.
In our courses students learn how to build a core understanding of digital skills, computational thinking, coding using scratch and python, and practice skills that promote online safety through highly engaging, fully supported lessons as well as online enrichment activities.
Although we have assigned age groups for each stage of the course, we will also keep in mind your kid’s individual capabilities in mind.
The DigiKids course is designed by the UK’s National Computing Centre, NCC Education.

Mr. Steven Camilleri
Mr. Steven Camilleri received his Master’s in Information Technology from the University of Malta in 2006.
The ICCS qualification or a minimum of 6 O’levels to enroll on the IDCS. To start the BSc 2nd year students must have successfully completed the IDCS or an equivalent qualification. Only students who complete all BSc 2nd year modules can move on to the final year of the Middlesex University BSc.
Since short courses are normally beginners courses most do not have specific entry requirements. With regards to the programming short courses a basic understanding of this field is recommended. A good level of English is essential.
IT Professional Courses
Entry requirements for these courses depend on the course in question. Normally those who apply for such courses have a number of years of work experience within management or IT.
If you do not have the necessary requirement we also provide you with foundation courses that will provide you with the entry requirement for your diplomas.
You can tell from the campus facilities that STC invests money to give students a great educational experience, which I do not believe other institutions do as much.Vanessa Mercieca
The lecturers are highly knowledgeable and always willing to help their students. Once I obtain my degree I would like to eventually move on to a Masters programme.Matthew Borg Carr
STC offers courses which certificates are recognised both locally and abroad. Another thing that STC is good at is that they give importance to the student by offering him/her all the support/guidance s/he needs throughout the course.Mohamed Dekna
