Since 2010, we've developed concise IT strategies and IT visions for many schools, colleges and trusts. Our approach is multi-stakeholder and includes audits, surveying staff, team reviews in-class with teachers, "Art of the Possible" kick-off days and more.
We don't agree with creating countless pages of "lip service" to what IT can do for your organisation, or to baffle you with fancy unproven tech. Instead, we create a live, workable strategy to ensure you get buy-in from staff, students, parents and governors.
