South West College Cyber and Coding Summer Camp

June, 2021

A new Cyber and Coding Summer Camp will take place across South West College campuses this summer, from 28th June – 2ndJuly, 9:30am – 3:30pm daily. The one-week camp is free, takes place in Dungannon, Omagh and Enniskillen, and is now open for enrolments. 
 
Coding is a vastly growing industry and cyber and coding skills are essential to many new and emerging jobs, as well as becoming useful in more traditional career areas as well. Cyber Security in particular is something that all businesses are aware of and as such it’s a career area that is likely to create more jobs in the coming years; while more generally, as far back as 2012, then culture minister, Ed Vaizey, said the public must start to place as high a value on their computer skills as they do on their ability to string a sentence together.
 
The South West College Cyber and Coding Summer Camp is for 16-19 year olds and will include mini competitions and prizes on the final day of the camp. Throughout the week students will learn coding skills through python programme and cyber understanding and skills. Our small group camps are taught by friendly, expert tutors, so to add coding to your summer plans, sign up now. To book please contact Ann-Marie Donaghy on 07545205249.
