Our Vision

Put simplyICT should be a learning tool not a learning inhibitor. Technology is no longer just supporting the curriculum, instead it has, and continues to become, an increasingly essential part of the curriculum. 

Our vision is that the ICT experience that pupils receive during their schools years should reflect the always-on IT experience that today’s modern workplaces demand.

That’s why we focus on resolving issues that affect learning outcomes in as short a time as possible. Regular visits are important, however today’s dependency on ICT means that these scheduled sessions are becoming less fit for purpose. By implementing new remote monitoring, and an enhanced ticketing system, we are now able to respond to incidents that affect learning outcomes in a far more timely manner. 

Our Values

We are immensely proud of the work that we do in supporting our many school clients. We take this responsibility very seriously, and we ask a lot of our ICT technicians as they go about their duties.

We expect all of our team to adhere to several core principles, namely:

  • Professionalism – they are working in an environment where children are absorbing everything around them. When our technicians are on site, we expect them to act as role models for those children who may choose a future career in IT.
  • Skilled – As the pace of technological change increases, so to does the importance of remaining skilled and certified in new technologies. We provide regular training on the latest technologies, such as Microsoft’s Cloud, and latest generation AV solutions.
  • Safety Minded – it is vital that our team remain mindful of the environment in which they work. That’s why, in addition to mandatory DBS checking, we provide regular Safeguarding training to all of our team members.
