Leyton Sixth Form's Computing and ICT students were given the opportunity to take part in a National PHP Conference at York University Physics Centre.

The group of Stretch and Challenge students secured a fantastic opportunity to explore programming in the real world as part of their progression planning for careers in high-tech top flight industries of the future.

Students were able to participate in a wide range of talks, interactive activities and speak with industry experts.

Mohanned Khabbazeh, programme manager for Computing and ICT at Leyton Sixth Form College commented: “The university conference has exposed our students to a range of career options in the computing industries of the future.  All the students were able to extend their knowledge of programming languages which is a vital skill and so much more technical awareness.”

Student Kaleem Peeroo computing skills saw him win at Amazon Echo Dot.  All students agreed the day had enhanced their knowledge and desire to work in some of the country’s leading Hi-Tech industries.

Such trips and visits are a regular part of the Computing and ICT programme area.
