As part of their Btec course year 13 pupils undertake a Networking unit. This unit explores the internet, the software and hardware associated with internet connection and the creation of a Local Area Network and associated devices. They are expected to research and document various equipment and also to independently create, connect and test the system.
Myself and 8 6th Form pupils visited Xiscad Training in Sunderland where the CEO Steve Car, was professional, welcoming and a pleasure to meet. He made the pupils feel at ease and the whole afternoon was well planned, resourced and met the criteria for the unit perfectly.
