Cre­at­ing a dig­i­tal fu­ture

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - STREET WATCH -

MORE than 4500 schools across the coun­try now have ac­cess to courses in com­put­ing and tech­nol­ogy through new busi­ness ScopeIT Ed­u­ca­tion.

ScopeIT Ed­u­ca­tion held an open day last month at Regent Col­lege in Victoria Park, where stu­dents ex­plored the courses.

The courses are in­te­grated with the cur­ricu­lum and teach stu­dents to code, build web­sites, cre­ate apps and more.

“Ev­ery stu­dent, re­gard­less of back­ground, so­cio-eco­nomic sta­tus or ge­o­graphic re­gion, should have ac­cess to the dig­i­tal skills they need to suc­ceed in their fu­ture ca­reers,” founder and chief ex­ec­u­tive Frank Lu­cisano said.

Scope IT Ed­u­ca­tion pro­vides hard­ware, soft­ware, in­ter­net con­nec­tion, les­son plans and in­struc­tors.

“We are re­ally proud to not only be ed­u­cat­ing the stu­dents of to­mor­row, but also gen­er­at­ing em­ploy­ment in the tech­nol­ogy and teach­ing sec­tors,” Mr Lu­cisano said.
