Schoolgirls are logging into a career in computers, thanks to a course organised by Coventry Polytechnic. They are learning how hi-tech equipment has transformed many industries and about the wide range of new jobs for women made possible by computers. Third-formers fro Stoke Park, Ernesford Grange, Lyng Hall and Blue Coat schools are taking part in the week-long course. The Polytechnic organisers hope it will encourage more girls to become interested in a job with computers. One part of the course was a tour of Coventry's computer-run traffic control centre which has revolutionised vehicle movement in and around the city. Manager Tom Holland showed them how closed circuit television and computer-controlled traffic signals enabled them to minimise delays in rush hours and after accidents and breakdowns. A look round GEC Telecommunications in Coventry is also included in the course programme. Our photo shows Jenni Neal, 14, of Stoke Park School sitting at the keyboard in the traffic control centre under the guidance of assistant manager Len Mason.
