For the second year running, the Computing Department took 30 students to UKFast for their Digital Careers Masterclass and they had a superb time learning about careers in technology.
After a quick game of giant chess in the lobby, we were treated to a tour of the office, seeing first-hand the work of the sales, technical support and cybersecurity operations teams. UKFast's office is an exciting place to work with an emphasis on energy and fun, so the students also experienced the gym, games room and slide before hearing about the opportunities for school leavers and graduates. There was even a chance to play some retro games of Pac-Man and Mario Kart before heading back to school. Everyone was buzzing, and our hosts were complimentary on the students' behaviour and enthusiasm. I'm sure we will be back next year.
