Sil­ver suc­cess for col­lege stu­dents

Llanelli Star - - Letters -

TWO Llanelli stu­dents have been hon­oured in a Welsh fi­nal of a com­pe­ti­tion where they both won sil­ver awards for their IT skills.

Rep­re­sent­ing Coleg Sir Gâr, Kieran Davies won sil­ver in the ad­vanced IT sup­port tech­ni­cian cat­e­gory and Dan Roberts, a for­mer Coed­cae stu­dent, won sil­ver for web­site de­sign at a Skills Com­pe­ti­tion Wales event held in Coleg Gwent.

The web de­sign brief asked com­peti­tors from col­leges across Wales to cre­ate a five page web­site en­ti­tled Tour of Bri­tain which tested skills in HTML, CSS and Java Script. “Win­ning sil­ver was to­tally un­ex­pected,” said Dan Roberts. “But it was a nice sur­prise and I’m proud of the achieve­ment.” The ad­vanced IT sup­port tech­ni­cian cat­e­gory was Kieran’s first ex­pe­ri­ence of com­pet­ing and he kept calm un­der pres­sure. “It was chal­leng­ing but good,” said Kieran, who has been work­ing with Dan learn­ing ad­di­tional skills in prepa­ra­tion for the com­pe­ti­tion in the col­lege’s IT Academy.
