Kerridge Commercial Systems celebrates long-term relationship with Newbury College

Newbury College

A lunch was held last week to celebrate the long-term relationship between Hungerford-based Kerridge Commercial Systems (KCS) and Newbury College.

Over the last 15 years, KCS has provided IT equipment to the college, supported careers events and welcomed students on work placements. CEO of Kerridge Commercial Systems, Ian Bendelow, and College Principal and CEO, Dr Anne Murdoch, attended the lunch along with other members of college staff and KCS employees.

Ian Bendelow said, “As a leading software provider we recognise the great variety and quality of career opportunities our industry offers to students of IT. This is why we are delighted to support the college’s IT curriculum.”

Several students have been employed by KCS following the completion of their IT course at Newbury College. Ex-student, Polly Theobald, who also attended the lunch, now works at KCS as a trainee software engineer.

Mr Bendelow added, “Our links with the community are very important to us and we’re in the process of strengthening existing relationships – as well as developing new ones - with local schools and other educational establishments. We’re in the unique position of being able to provide very relevant support to students considering a future in the world of IT, and I want KCS to have the opportunity to encourage as many of them as possible.”

KCS develops, provides and supports fully integrated trading and business management software solutions for distributive companies such as merchants, wholesalers and retailers.
