IT Support for the Education Sector
In a recent report ‘Realising the potential of technology in education: A strategy for education providers and the technology industry,’ the UK’s then Secretary of State for Education said, ’Although within the education sector it will never replace the role of our great teachers, I believe technology can be an effective tool to help reduce workload, increase efficiencies, engage students and communities, and provide tools to support excellent teaching and raise student attainment.’
However, with constant pressures on funding, difficulties recruiting and retaining the right people, challenging testing and examination regimes, government and parental expectation, Ofsted inspections and so many more issues besides, the last thing you probably want to be worrying about is your IT specifically and IT support for the education sector more generally.
So you’ll be delighted to hear that from our extensive experience of working with schools, colleges and trusts throughout London as the managed IT services provider of choice, we understand you simply need managed IT services, IT support and IT security solutions you can rely on to work effectively, efficiently and as promised. Because that’s the way you have the confidence and peace of mind you need to get on with educating the young people in your charge.
Effective technology enhances the student experience
With technology now embedded in society, it’s transformed the way we engage with each other, the services we use and the content we consume. This is especially true for our young people, where around half of all five to 15-year olds have their own smartphone and nearly as many have their own tablet.
And although the use of technology in education is of variable quality and is rarely fully integrated, it has also dramatically changed the way teachers and students of all ages interact with one another and go about their daily routines.
Education technology (often called EdTech) is rapidly coming of age, helping to support teaching and the effective day-to-day management of educational institutions, which is why your choice of managed service provider for your IT is so important.
From our extensive experience in the education sector we know the power of correctly sourced, secured, supported and integrated technology to make a difference to schools and colleges. The impacts it can deliver range from enriching the classroom experience, improving learning outcomes and boosting productivity and collaboration to simplifying routine tasks, reducing administrative and other costs and ensuring your data security, safeguarding and OFSTED requirements – as well as regulations such as GDPR – are all fully met.
As the go-to managed IT service providers for London, we work in partnership with our education sector clients to ensure the technology we help procure, install and support is totally matched to their needs, priorities and budgets. What’s more, we provide managed IT services, security and support solutions that are scalable so they can evolve as your needs do, while delivering crucial availability and continuity.
The answer’s yes. Now, what’s the question?
Whether you want a fully managed IT service provider solution to outsource your day-to-day tasks, additional specialist IT support to work with your own in-house IT team or consultants to run and manage more complex projects from concept to completion – we deliver.
What’s more, we’ll help minimise costs, maximise effectiveness, efficiency and performance and protect your investment in your technology to provide added value and tangible results for the long term.
We deliver what matters
Not only do we have a solid understanding of the software and hardware systems used in schools and colleges, such as Microsoft Office 365, SIMS, Foldr and Activeteach, we also totally understand your need to balance online learning with safeguarding.
