50 years of dedicated IT training

Computeach were founded by George Parkinson in 1964, after he recognised the potential of distance learning and the emerging industry of computers and IT within businesses. This was five years before even the Open University was set up!

When Computeach started, the smallest computer was the size of an office and cost over £1m!

Back then, the course materials consisted of printed manuals that were accompanied by live lectures on long playing records. A long way from the online interactive tutorials and virtual labs that our students use today!

Our historic team

Moving through the decades, in 1990 Computeach purchased University House in the West Midlands. The building underwent a huge transformation into a state-of-the-art IT learning facility.

All our teams and services located under one roof

University House has continued to be our main head office. This is where our dedicated team of in-house tutors, student support and careers team are all based.

Our head office is easily accessible from both main road and rail routes and is located in the centre of the country. Its location makes it easier for students from around the UK to travel to us. This is where our kick start days are held and where students can come for tutor support before taking their exams.

Facilities that provide a friendly yet focused learning environment

Computeach has continued to go from strength-to-strength, providing courses that include certifications from Microsoft, CompTIA and CIW. This means we can provide courses that give you the qualifications employers are looking for today. The qualifications you earn set you apart from other candidates. Our hassle-free subscriptions allow you to learn at your own pace, with tutor and careers support available throughout your studies. We continue to embrace the values put forward by our founder George Parkinson and strive to provide the best possible learning experience for our students, with no hidden costs.
