The ICT managed service means I have more time to focus on supporting staff in new ways to use and apply technology in their day-to-day roles and don’t have to worry about fixing devices or monitoring the network. Knowing Capita is supporting the college network, servers, devices and systems delivers peace of mind that teachers can teach without IT disruption and students have a positive learning experience.
