Students studying ICT and Computing at the College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London, got a rare opportunity to meet industry experts from Hewlett Packard last week when they visited the College to discuss the skills required to be successful in the industry.
Workshop facilitator, Derek Tutt, discussed the various roles available, what they involved, what future prospects they offered, and what type of salaries students could expect if they were successful.
He spoke to over 40 students in two separate workshops at the Tottenham and Enfield centres, who all left determined to pursue a high flying career in IT.
“The workshop was motivating and inspiring and has helped me to decide on my future career paths in IT,” said Cleveland Forte. “It’s always good to hear from someone who is doing the role you want to do or working in a company you inspire to work for. It makes it achievable.”
The workshop was based around career and leadership advice and was set up as part of Hewlett Packard’s commitment to work in diverse communities across Haringey and Enfield.
Enrichment Manager, Anthony Robinson, who set up the workshop, said: “It was a good session. The students received some very useful advice that will help them as they go forward.”
