Apple in education: Helping school leaders put tech to work

From iPad to Mac, Apple technology can help you support your institution’s goals.

Supporting teaching, improving learning

Embedding technology into the curriculum is far more than just buying devices. We want to see schools innovate and succeed with technology. The education sector currently faces many challenges – from limited funding to increasing teacher workloads – and our team can help you overcome those.

We know that to make your technology deployment a success, you’ll need great leaders and teachers, and they’ll need to be backed by great technology and great support. Our team of Regional Education Managers, accredited CPD trainers and IT specialists are here to help you along the way.

In a nutshell…

Take advantage of our Leading Innovation Programme, proven to help you roll out and utilise classroom devices.

Discover funding solutions to help you beat budget cuts and acquire the latest education technology.

Our technical and education expertise can help integrate technology into the classroom easily and effectively.

We’re an Apple Authorised Education Specialist who’ve been working with Apple solutions for over 27 years.

How we help your school

Our Leading Innovation Programme

Our Leading Innovation Programme is a framework to help you discover, design and deliver a sustainable, technology-rich learning environment that supports the needs of your institution. Delivered by our dedicated education team, we’ll guide you through a complete deployment programme, with each step designed to give you all the information and support you need to make a technology rollout a success.

Supporting your staff

Simply deploying Apple technology with no plan as to how it will be implemented into classrooms is proven to be ineffective. But with our skills and experience, we can help you create a vision and roadmap to roll out technology successfully and support teaching and learning for the future.

Our programme of training and preparation courses helps teachers figure out classroom workflows, reduce their workloads, set up mentoring programmes, support SEND students and review their pedagogy to include effective teaching with technology. Whether your staff need 1:1 coaching and mentoring, consultancy or any other assistance, our authorised Apple Professional Learning Specialists (teachers and educators themselves) will help you get more from your EdTech.

Supporting New Bridge Multi-Academy Trust: The UK’s first 1:1 iPad trust

New Bridge Trust is made up of five schools. They had previously tried to roll out technology but had no clear plan, giving out devices without a system or structure – this meant device uptake was sporadic and the results were not what they wanted.

That’s why they came to us: they needed help from an Apple specialist with long experience in the UK education sector. We helped them plan out a 1:1 iPad rollout, complete with training for staff with varying levels of technical experience and strategic support for the senior leadership team. We used our Leading Innovation Programme to help them develop a vision for the role of technology in the school’s teaching and trained their teachers – the results speak for themselves.

How we help you fund the latest classroom technology

Financial sustainability

Budgets might be tight, but we can help you make devices affordable. Our technology subscription model follows DfE guidelines to ensure that your school can equip staff and students with the latest technology like iPad and Mac, for a simple, regular, fixed subscription. A free face-to-face meeting allows us to explain how it all works and provide you with the best options for your situation. We can also show you how, by deploying devices 1:1, you’ll actually notice significant cost savings from the outset that only increase with time.

Affordable device procurement

Through leasing and subscription, you’re able to make a bigger impact with your technology in one go, by spreading the cost over multiple annual budgets. Costs are predictable and agreed at the start of the lease, so you won’t find payments changing over time. We deployed iPad under a lease agreement for New Bridge Trust, which meant they were able to keep their devices up to date with the latest models using two year refresh cycles, and scale up their deployment to meet demand.

We can support your deployment from start to finish

When you deploy a 1:1 iPad scheme, you’re going to put strain on your IT infrastructure. Our team have worked with over 6000 schools, and we know how to make sure your entire school is prepared to take on more devices. 

As part of our Leading Innovation Programme, we engage with your technical teams to ensure the successful deployment of devices on any scale. We’ll introduce your team to Apple School Manager and mobile device management (MDM) software, which are the most effective methods when it comes to managing user accounts, apps and devices. We can show you a range of options and look at the challenges and solutions you’ll need to consider.

Our team are here for you

We have a dedicated senior leadership and trust team that work with executive teams across the UK. Whether you’re a school, multi-academy trust, college or university, we can support the successful deployment of technology across your institution.

Our team is made up of educators, teachers and IT specialists, with Apple Professional Learning Specialists on hand to help you get the most out of your iPad deployment. As an Authorised Apple Education Specialist (one of only seven), you can be sure that we offer the highest levels of service, expert support and honest advice.
