Technology is constantly changing the way we live, and IT professionals such as programmers, security specialists, and administrators are in high demand.The Wintec range of IT programmes include:
"At The Instillery, we have always been proud to be a 'people first' business. This is reflected by how we work closely with our customers to truly understand their business drivers and create positive outcomes using technology.
How we achieve this starts with our people. We have employed 5 permanent staff from Wintec in the past year and can confidently say that they have transitioned into the “real world” of business very well. They have gained an understanding of our customers’ needs, and work with them to solve problems which has seen us receive positive feedback directly related to the actions of these individuals on a number of occasions.
In our view, Wintec are doing a great job equipping students to enter the world of IT as they not only understand the theory, but also the application of their knowledge and the soft skills required in any customer focused work environment."
- Richard Jenkins, General Manager Sales, The Instillery
