Student case study
Dan decided to take a new direction by studying a Digital Technologies Level 5 HND at the South Central Institute of Technology (SCIoT) Reading hub, based in Reading College and University Centre.
“I’m so glad that I took the leap and changed career by studying at the SCIoT,” Dan beams. “I’ve become more confident with doing presentations, which previously I was nervous about. Now that I’ve done it once, I’m happy to do it again.
“I’m really grateful for all the support and industry visits that we’ve received and I’m looking forward to pursuing a career in data analytics.”
Sajeeth has joined the South Central Institute of Technology (SCIoT) hub as a Digital Industry Trainer, based at Reading College. His main responsibility is to facilitate training for digital apprenticeships in various areas such as software development, data analytics, ICT and HNC courses.
Sajeeth shared: “What I love about working with SCIoT, is that it is a vibrant institute, with a passion to help students achieve their career aspirations.
“I’m glad and happy to be part of the initiative and efforts to drive the ambitions and achievements of our new cohort of learners.”
