Case Study


Shona McAlpine, (Computing Science Teacher, Stirling High School)

"The Industry in the Classroom project is really inspirational for our pupils.  It gives them a link to the real work environment and a chance to discuss how best to develop their careers with people who have achieved good jobs in technology. We all know that employment is expanding in areas such as software development, cyber security and data science and Stirling High is keen to provide our students with opportunities to develop digital skills and qualifications needed."

Tony Harkins (Computer Science Teacher, St Aloysius College)

“Computing Science is pervasive in today’s society and there is huge potential in the future job market for talented computing scientists. For this reason, I am keen to embrace every opportunity to link our classroom learning with the real world of work and to give our young people an insight into the varied and exciting worlds of digital tech. By linking with industry, our young people learn about the real-world experience of computing professionals, allowing us to really dispel myths and open their eyes to the huge range of roles available in software development, cyber-security, artificial intelligence, data science. and many more areas.
