On Friday 20th February, the IT department enjoyed a full day of the Sentinus ‘IT Road Show’. This was aimed at our KS4 students to promote an interest in IT, Computer Science and Software Development as a possible career choice amongst students. Specifically, the programme was designed to give pupils an opportunity to work on key skills including teamwork and problem-solving.
Overall, it was a great insight into the IT industry giving each of the listeners an acute awareness of what the IT sector is looking for and which skills are on demand. The pupils’ exposure to lengthy software programming has certainly given them an appetite for more.
