Level 3 Extended Diploma in Computing
Previous Institution: Church Stretton School
I came to Shrewsbury Colleges Group because I had friends who spoke very highly of their experiences here. I enjoy the games development and web production and it’s great to turn your own ideas into a reality.
Level 3 Extended Diploma in IT
Previous school: Charlton School
I chose this course because it is practical and would prepare me for the real world. I have developed my skills and I am now prepared for my degree Apprenticeship with PebblePad. The people on this course are so friendly and the teachers are really helpful. You’ll never get bored with the huge variety of areas that you cover, like business, security and game development.

ICT has always been a big interest for me and once I have completed College I will be going to University of Wolverhampton to study games development. My favourite focus has been programming – you can get involved and you learn loads of new techniques. This course teaches useful skills that you can take into a variety of career roles.
