CONEL’s Access to Computing students take their study seriously. Seriously enough to request a mentor to support them with Visual programming and help them build their skills. So Laila Hassanzadeh, Head of Computing and Creative Media, got in touch with one of CONEL’s alumni and former excellence award winner Charlie Baker. Charlie was cited as being “very creative, completely independent and exceptionally hardworking” when he won his excellence award and is now at King’s College in his second year. He comes in every Wednesday from 3 – 5pm to provide workshops and support the students.
The students are very appreciative of his input, saying “Charlie has helped greatly with our understanding of programming concepts. We appreciate his efforts and clear explanations of the examples that has made us more confident in programming. We are now aiming for higher grades in the programming subjects and feel confident we are developing our understanding and application of concepts for university”. Laila Hassanzadeh is also very positive,
saying “Charlie has displayed excellent management and organisational skills and real commitment to Access to Computing group. He always comes prepared to the workshop with lots of hand outs and relevant materials to support the learners.”
