Justin Harling, CAE MD commented “We have been so encouraged by the way the Digital Champions program has taken off. The quality of the students and colleges participating continues to grow and it has had a positive effect in multiple areas.”

“Late last year CAE was recognised by our peers as an outstanding supplier to the public sector. The unique insights the Digital Champions Program has given us a better understanding of the needs of the educational IT landscape” concluded Harling.

First launched by CAE Technology Services in 2014, the Digital Champions Program is an exclusive opportunity for Further Education colleges and their students to discover a unique perspective on how technology impacts Further Education.
