As with other schools in the region, we have decided to adopt a ‘BYOD’ policy, asking students to provide their own device. Our Information Technology infrastructure has traditionally centred on the Apple iPad platform, but in 2019 we will also be allowing Apple Macbook and Windows PC devices. For details on suitable devices please refer to the minimum specification requirements in the Connect Information Booklet.
We wish to stress that the device does not necessarily have to be brand new, however, if the device is not listed, it is not supported and cannot be used at the College. The iPad will need to have Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and the Connect Backpack app installed. All are available from the App Store. Macbooks and Windows laptops will need to have the Microsoft Office suite installed. This is provided at no additional cost by the Department of Education.
Please refer to the BYOD FAQ Link below for further information.
