ICT enhances creativity

Sixth formers from a Hampshire college triumphed in a Dragons' Den-style competition to design their own website.

The students, from St Vincent College, Gosport, beat teams from Portsmouth and Southampton to take the Learning and Skills Improvement Service's 2009 challenge.

In the final stage of a two-part competition they had to produce a website to promote and encourage next year's information and technology students. Teacher Nick Sims told the local paper: “Our students worked incredibly hard to produce an outstanding website which was professionally and maturely presented.

“They had to present their website idea to a panel of local principals and business people.”

Student Adam Raynor added: “I was very proud that our team won the ICT Challenge 2009, it made all the hard work we put in worthwhile.”
