Education = Transforming + Informing

14-19 Education Consultants at Tenison’s for Student’s presentation

Diploma in IT students with Educational consultants Kate Ambrosi and Paula Dunkley. Thank you for your time and support.

Kate Ambrosi and Paula Dunkley from Croydon Council gave up their afternoon to come and visit the Diploma students and listen to team presentations on the project work they have been doing so far. Both teams chose a unit each and made compelling presentations explaining how the Diploma has truly allowed for “learning to come to life”. Team Light (Alistair, Tevin and Geewai) talked about the Networking Project and went through all the research they have been doing. Team Archten (Rodard, Omar, Alice and Matt) then talked about the enterprise and team working unit and explained the current business challenge which is about raising money for charity and organising a high profile quizzing event. Team Archten talked about selling and the experiences (good and bad) that they’ve had. It was interesting to note the knowledge of corporate structures that has been acquired through selling to organisations, often starting with customer service staff and working their way up through the firm. Paula and Kate were very impressed with the students and offered to help out by selling the quizzing event at their various steering group meetings, asking senior Croydon Council members to purchase a table and also arranging for a widget and link to the quizzing donation page http://www.justgiving.com/quizforcharity to be put on the CC intranet. Students were keen to promote how different the Diploma has been and we were all agreed that it has been wonderful to see our students get out in to the real world and take part in projects and experiences that will set them apart from their peers.
