Class rep responsibilities

“My course has taught me all about installing hardware and software, using Microsoft servers, setting up networks, keeping computers safe and much more. It’s amazing how much you can learn in such a short time and my teachers are all brilliant. I’m also a class rep for my course which is a nice responsibility to have as I can try to change things for the better.”
