IT students at Derby College Group have been given a lockdown boost thanks to a donation of new speakerphone technology.

The college has been given 10 high-tech Jabra Puck speakerphones to enable students on digital study programmes to take part in virtual meetings.

The donation has come from Derbyshire firm Lubrizol after the company agreed to join the college’s growing list of employer academy partners.

Mark Shore, computer science and information technology teacher at the college’s Joseph Wright Centre, said: “Lubrizol is a valued Employer Academy partner working collaboratively with the digital curriculum, including the students who are the first on our T-Level study programme.

“As well as providing valued advice, guidance and industry placement opportunities, we are very grateful for the donation of these Jabra Pucks hands-free communication devices.

“These will greatly enhance the students' audio conferencing experience, particularly during the virtual employer engagement, which is such an important part of their study programmes.”
