In the Basingstoke Gazette, today we’ve seen a story that has touched our hearts.
Basingstoke College of Technology are in the runnings to win a top tech award from the Time Education Supplement. They are one of eight colleges to be nominated for the award of Outstanding use of technology for improving teaching, learning and assessment – which recognises outstanding achievement in Further Education.
Seeing this story today however, has not surprised us at all. For the past few months we have had students here in the Merit Office, for work experience in our IT department. Their knowledge has astounded us, not only on the subject of IT, but many other things too! They have amazed us and made us smile, these guys are going to go far and we wish them the best of luck in life!
All of us at Merit wish the college the best of luck and we’ll have our fingers crossed that they’ll win the award they well and truly deserve!
