STUDENTS are being offered a wide range of computing qualifications in a brand new school at Great Yarmouth College launched with a big investment in technology.

The new School of Computing and Learning Resources has been created with a widened portfolio of programmes and opportunities for learners.

Students who enrol in September will have access to more than 120 computers with the latest software, teaching equipment and methods designed to offer flexibility in the way students learn.

The new school - the first time IT and computing has been recognised as a specialist separate area - has been designed to meet the growing need for IT expertise in every work place.

The college works closely with employers when designing courses to provide a young workforce with relevant skills in the latest technology to move straight into today's industry and business.

School pupils - especially Year 11s - are being given the chance to meet staff and work on the equipment at a special come-and-try taster day on May 6.

Staff are also keen to meet parents of potential students to show the facilities and discuss the new school's aims.

Head of School Andy Cooper said qualifications from level one to degree level were offered with a clear pathway of progression and innovative teaching methods.

The new curriculum and events for the School of Computing and Learning Resources will be regularly updated on the college website www.gyc.ac.uk.
