It is possible to loan laptops on a short term basis in certain circumstances. We have an up to date collection of IT equipment, including fixed and portable interactive whiteboards, iPads, data loggers, digital camera, camcorder, digital projectors and various peripherals such as printers and scanners.

On-line learning environment

Blackboard is a web based tool which enables individual users to have access to a variety of information and content from one central location. We have an established learning community for SCITT trainees and tutors within Blackboard.
