“Our aim at Teach Trust is for all the schools to make the most of their IT provision to support learning and teaching. With schools coming together under the trust, they had varying IT capabilities and services. In order to understand their IT environment, the audit undertook by Smartschools was key. The team worked with the individual schools and the audit findings produced are really important. The findings are the basis to support the trust’s leadership team to develop an IT vision and development plan that meets each individual school’s needs.”
