Improvements to our ICT Service Level Agreement
We are delighted to inform you that following a recent procurement exercise we have appointed Think IT as our new IT partner from the 1st February 2018.
Think IT is a familiar IT supplier to Luton schools and has already been working alongside the current team, and supporting schools over the last 18 months. Schools have benefitted from using the Think IT procurement portal and, ICT Technicians and Network Managers have been introduced to new programs, tools, license arrangements and services through the ICT Technicians and Network Managers Network Meetings. The Readiness Assessment Audit has helped Senior Leadership Teams in a number of Luton schools work out the technology they need based on the outcomes they want for learners, staff, parents and other key stakeholders.
Think IT will be delivering and managing all of the ICT SLAs and services you have purchased including providing a technical support service. This new partnership will ensure that our offer keeps pace with the continual change in ICT and meets your needs for enhanced outcomes.
Over the next couple of weeks Think IT will be in touch with those schools that buyback this service to arrange a one to one visit, to discuss the ICT SLA and any issues you may have and wish to talk about.
We are also planning a series of exciting informative workshops at the Leagrave Centre and will share details with you in the near future.
For further information or queries, please contact Katherine Shieber - Schools Traded Services Business Unit Manager on 01582 548020.
The Green Tree School Awards: September 2018
Kick start the new school year with a Woodland Trust assembly showing the importance of trees.
Our Man Who Planted Trees assembly is an engaging tale which helps pupils and teachers to fully understand what trees do for us. We can come and deliver the assembly for you, or you can do it yourself, or even better get the children to do it. We have all you need in the assembly kit on our website or go through our new Tree Tool for Schools webpage which is also full of wonderful resources.
Get in touch to book your assembly and find out more about the support available.
