Applied Computing Curriculum Development at New UTC!

10th November 2014

Dear Member FAO All businesses that have software development capability in their business.

APPLIED COMPUTING CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT AT NEW UTC! Over the last few weeks a team of people have been developing the Applied Computing curriculum content for the new University technical College on the Olympic Legacy Park and specialising in Human Sciences and Computing The next step is to test the draft proposal for suitability with businesses that employ software engineers. That includes those businesses who may or may not be primarily software development companies, but do have an in-house development team. The intention is to hold an Employers Workshop on Wed 12 Nov between 10am and 12pm in Central Sheffield (venue will be circulated when finalised). More details and background can be pulled directly from the event registration page. It is really important that business gets its input at this stage and (hopefully) engages in the future because we are all interested in getting a steady supply of excellent employees going forward so I would be really grateful if you could help this process. Many Thanks Richard Wright
