Why Does this matter?

UK schools are spending £5 billion each year on IT software, staff and equipment, with the average Secondary school budget being over £400,000. As the second largest spend in a school after salaries, your Senior Leaders will want to be assured that you have the right people with the right knowledge delivering your IT.

In today's fast-paced digital world, where technology plays a pivotal role in shaping the learning environment, it is crucial to ensure that your school's IT department is equipped with the right talent and expertise. To help you achieve this, I would like to introduce you to the concept of IT staff assessments and highlight the benefits they can bring to your school.

Identify Skill Gaps

IT staff assessments provide an opportunity to evaluate the skills and capabilities of your current IT team.


By conducting comprehensive assessments, you can pinpoint areas where further training or hiring may be required. This ensures that your school has the right personnel to handle the ever-evolving technological demands and challenges.

Technology is advancing at an unprecedented pace, and it's crucial for educational institutions to keep up. IT staff assessments provide insights into the latest trends and best practices in the field. This knowledge equips your team to implement innovative solutions and leverage emerging technologies, ensuring that your school remains at the forefront of educational technology.

Enhance Security and Data Protection

Schools hold a wealth of sensitive information, making robust security measures vital. IT staff assessments can help identify potential vulnerabilities and areas where security protocols need reinforcement.


By ensuring that your IT team is well-versed in cybersecurity practices, you can safeguard student data and protect your school's digital infrastructure from potential threats.

Clapping Game

Improve Efficiency and Support

A well-assessed and trained IT team can streamline operations and provide effective support to both staff and students. Assessments enable you to identify areas for improvement, allowing your IT staff to deliver timely and efficient solutions. This, in turn, promotes a seamless learning environment and enhances the overall productivity of your school.

Investing in IT staff assessments is a proactive step towards optimizing your school's technological capabilities and ensuring a secure, efficient, and future-ready learning environment.
