IT Support

There are over 1000 desktops based at the college for student use, these and all other IT systems are supported by the IT Team who are part of the Central Trust IT Team.


If you have an IT problem with a computer, then please ask your teacher or Academic Coach to raise an IT ticket. The IT Support helpdesk is on the first floor of the Blythe building (for IT problems, rather than standard password resets).
