Extracts from this document...

Introduction

My name is Pasha Ah. Siraja and I am investigating HOW the Newham VIth Form College uses ICT in performing it's different functions; and the results are as follows: The The background of NewVIc: Newham Sixth Form College (NewVIc) opened in 1992. Since then the college has grown rapidly and now has more than 2100 full-time students on a range of vocational and academic programmes. The college is financially secure and has its own good financial status. Its Educational Services: The College offers many courses. It has large and successful programmes in both AS and A-levels and vocational courses. As a college, it emphasises the importance of strong tutoring and key skills for its students. All full-time teachers are also personal tutors and all teachers are responsible for ensuring the relevant skills development of their students. It has very good - and still improving - retention and achievement. Its services for the physically challenged people: The College is committed to inclusive learning. It is developing expertise as a centre for students with visual or hearing impairment. The college has a high degree of accessibility for students with physical difficulties. It also offers provision for students with learning disabilities, most of whom, are on the mainstream programmes. It offers programmes at two levels for EAL (English as an additional language) students. Its Certification: The College was inspected by OFSTED in November 2004 and was judged to be outstanding in visual and performing arts and media as well as in leadership and management. ...read more.

Sales- How ICT is used here: The sales department of NewVIc uses ICT to keep track of all the events which it has to promote by advertising in Newham, online advertising, posters, ads on its website, etc. It uses publishing software packages (For e.g., Microsoft(r) Office Publisher 2007 Enterprise Edition), to create the advertisements and use them in the marketing of the college. Its main responsibility is to sell the college to the people, i.e., taking care of all the advertising of the college in the London borough of Newham. The college has a spreadsheet which shows all the events and occasions which have got to take place in some venue on some day. The spreadsheet is always up-to-date as the scheduling staffs are very careful and quick in scheduling the events to be taking place. One of the sales department's works is to keep a keen look on the updates or the changes on the schedule spreadsheet. Once they find a new event on the spreadsheet, they start off immediately by creating posters, advertisements, online advertisements on their own website and also on other pages, E-mails to their students, creating a small message about that event so that when a person logs onto a computer in the college network, he/she will see the advertisement. 2. Purchasing- How ICT is used here: Here, ICT is used where staff can E-Mail the list of things required by them to the purchasing department, where the computer automatically creates a Database and lists all the things required according to the urgency and need. ...read more.
