Two of our students, Jamie and Sam were selected to take part in the Shaw Trust UK IT Challenge (part of the Global ICT Challenge) in Ipswich this week alongside 19 other young people with disabilities.

This is the first time the UK has been involved in the competition and four of the competitors will be chosen to represent the UK in India in October.

Although Jamie and Sam did not win any of the ‘big’ prizes over the two days, they had a fantastic time. On the first day they took part in four challenges working individually and then they did a team challenge; they did fantastically well and the challenges were tough (they included using the internet, Excel, PowerPoint and programming). They often took the mic in front of the whole room and shared their feedback and reflections. At the end of the first day they were exhausted but still managed to find some energy for the big party in the evening where new friends were made and they took over the dance floor!

Jamie and Sam represented themselves and the college amazingly, and have had a fabulous, and at times emotional, few days! They are very proud of their achievements and their medals, and we are very proud of them - congratulations both! :)
