Capita most requested IT provider by work experience students at Newham College
Capita Managed IT Solutions has recently received an award from Newham College in London for being the most requested IT provider by the College’s work experience students.
Capita is involved in an ongoing work experience programme with the College which involves students shadowing Capita on-site staff for a period of two weeks. Capita has worked with the college since 2010, delivering IT services to support learning and teaching including network provision, security management, disaster recovery and help desk support.
The College – which serves more than 12,000 students and employs 500 staff – increasingly relies on technology to support its teaching and learning. This year alone Capita has provided work experience support for twenty eight students, the highest of the College’s employers and partners. Students from various courses at Newham College, from ICT Systems and Principles for IT Professionals through to Application Development, have selected Capita as their chosen work placement.
Tarlochan Assi, Work Experience Coordinator at Newham College said: “I’d like to thank Capita for their continuous support this year throughout our IT students’ work experience programme. Many of our students have found the experience valuable and gained an insight into the IT world which will help them develop their skills and studies further and give them a great insight into IT as a career.”
He continued: “We also received excellent recommendations from teachers at Newham College, advising our students that Capita provide a great opportunity to gain hands on experience. We’d like to congratulate Capita on receiving the award for most requested IT provider by our students, an award which is very well deserved and we look forward to many more of our students working with you over the coming years.”
James Grant, Sales Director for Capita Managed IT Solutions commented: “Capita is absolutely delighted to receive an award for the most requested IT provider by Newham College’s students. Our long standing relationship with Newham College is a demonstration of the value we can add for its staff and students. This award shows our ability that we are a trusted IT provider, working in partnership with both staff and students to enhance and support their IT skills and help them progress their career further. We’d like to thank all those that have taken part in the Capita work experience programme and look forward to working with many more students over the years.”
