Pioneering College Smartphone App Makes Its Debut At Skills London 2010
Skills London 2010 – the UK’s largest careers event – will be the launch pad for an innovative new education app developed by Kensington and Chelsea College.
The college is one of the first in the country to take advantage of the new smartphone mobile technology.
Visitors to Skills London 2010, at Excel London, are being invited to the college’s stand at the event to see first hand how the app is set to revolutionize the way students search for courses and their availability.
Features on the ground-breaking mobile app include direct access to the college’s admissions team, latest news and a map of the college campuses and surrounding areas.
There’s even a survival guide included, packed with lots of local and college information for newly enrolled students.
Shanie Jamieson, Director for Community Regeneration at Kensington and Chelsea College, said:
‘Mobile technology is being viewed as the way forward in a society where access to information is expected to be instantaneous.’
‘We want to give our students and potential students the easiest, fastest and most accessible platform for getting in touch with us and this new app is the key to achieving that.’
‘A lot of thought has gone into what kind of app both current and potential students would find useful and we are pleased with the results. Come and find us at Skills London to see first hand what the new app can do!’
Kensington and Chelsea College is also giving everyone who visits their stand at Skills London 2010 the chance to win an iPad. All you have to do is come and register your details at the stand to be entered into a draw to win the iPad.
