What are your interests?



The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

How will Coding [SC] be useful to me?

Computer science is present in every aspect of modern society. Correctly-functioning software systems allow airplanes to fly from one city to another, give out money at the ATM and diagnose the level of glucose in your blood.

Understanding how computer hardware and software operate and relate to everyday life is an increasingly important area of learning for students.

Problem solving and computational thinking skills are developed in this course as students build and create software projects using their own ideas and imagination.

The course looks to build on any coding skills that primary students might have acquired while offering insight into possible future studies in computer science and software engineering.
