These opportunities help you to develop your CV and stand out from the crowd.

CAVC IT students have a great reputation for success at national competitions. In 2016 in the Microsoft IT Technician round at the World Skills Wales, CAVC students won all top three prizes. James Gradkowski came first, winning gold, while Jake Huntley and Zoila Garcia Mancebo won silver and bronze respectively.
