Creating a digital future
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.
“We anticipate to have over 200 instructors by the end of the year.”
