Google for Education
Since the start of the Pandemic, Amberfield College embarked on a journey to find practical and innovative solutions to drive quality education without interruptions. This led us into a partnership with Google Workspace for Education. From 2022, our learners and teachers use a tailor made Learner Management System designed by Google which allows teachers to engage learners in a more interactive approach with links to real life scenarios in any given subject.

IT /CAT/ ICT
Our IT (Information Technology) and CAT (Computer Application Technology) department is growing rapidly with a second IT lab coming to our High School in 2022, CAT focusing more on MS office applications, website technologies, social integration of technology and giving learners the skills to take on any job in the future with confidence in using technology. IT helps learners develop critical thinking, problem solving, decision making and an understanding of artificial intelligence through programming and algorithm development, leading learners up to the computer science, machine learning and robotics career paths. Gr 8 – 9 learners have the option of doing ICT as an additional subject after school.
