SJR Students’ Royal Invitation

A Level Computing students Oliver Farnworth and Louie Matthews had the privilege of meeting HRH Princess Anne at UKFast last week.
The students enjoyed chatting with the VIP guest about education in the Greater Manchester area and the opportunities that have been made possible for them by enrolling onto our Elective Programme – Future Technology Engineers.
UKFast are renowned for their outstanding dedication to bridging the digital skills gap and encouraging ongoing professional development, particularly through its apprenticeship programme.
As a college we have worked closely with UKFast for a number of years and many of our students have gone on to work and gain further qualifications with the company.
