Local people creating projects that make Southwark fantastic place to live, work and relax.
Southwark Sea Cadets aims to give young people the best possible head start in life through nautical fun and adventure.
Delivering the sea cadet experience will, however, be restricted by a limited IT capacity, as the sea cadet organisation has recently moved to a paper-less training programme. This means that a new 'Tech Hub' is required to deliver the full range of the new curriculum.
Furthermore, an increasing number of qualifications which are available to the young people at Southwark Sea Cadets require significant ICT capacity, including the BTEC First Diploma in Public Services and Music and the RYA Essential Navigation and Seamanship qualification.
The objective of this project is therefore to transform a small classroom into a 'Tech Hub', where 5 new laptops will be installed. This will be complimented by the existing wireless network, making it a cable-free zone. 2 further portable devices will be available in this space to support collaborative learning and instruction.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
This is a great idea to make learning relevant for the young people of Southwark. It will support their development and allow them to achieve external nationally recognised qualifications.
ICT is plays an increasingly significant part in modern life, and Southwark Sea Cadets requires this capacity to deliver its aim of giving young people the best possible head start in life through nautical fun and adventure.
This 'Tech Hub' is intended to be a space for interactive instruction and collaborative learning, which will motivate young people to succeed.
