New programme: Higher Diploma in Global Software, Sales Support and Localisation

10 Jul 2020

This programme is designed for high-achieving language graduates who wish to work in global software and technology sales and support sectors

Our new Higher Diploma course (QQI/NFQ Level 8) will strengthen your existing language skills and will help you to develop competencies in relation to the ICT, software sales, technical support and localisation skills which are necessary for managing global relationships in the ICT sector. We will also provide you with the intercultural communication skills necessary for the global world of work.

Global software and technology industries are a rapidly expanding sector within the Irish and EU economy. This conversion course offers language graduates the opportunity to upskill for, and to gain experience in, this dynamic and expanding sector. The programme offers a unique combination of advanced language skills and IT sales and support training, as well as the chance to build relevant skills solving real world problems.

As part of the Human Capital Initiative (HCI), for 2020, the HEA will be subsidising spaces on this programme.
