Hardware & Software

All educational establishments are expected to work to and attain very high standards, even though they have been given greater control to manage themselves.  The UK education sector may have more freedom of choice and more autonomy, but quality expectations are always high, whether the curriculum, teaching practices or school premises and equipment are being evaluated. 

When it comes to IT resources, these need to not only be readily available but up to date and able to cope with the latest demands in technology.  If students have great IT equipment and software at home, parents will expect this to be replicated at school.  Even the youngest children are now IT literate and are ready to start dealing with a keyboard from an early age.

Allocating funds efficiently

The problem is of course that the education sector has huge requirements when it comes to IT but they often have limited resources to apply to them.  With quality standards being tightened up by the authorities and budgets being forever stretched, schools need to pay more and more attention to the efficiency of their IT departments and their careful allocation of funds. Very often when inspections take place, use of technology can be seen as a fundamental benchmark of performance.  Get it wrong and statistics can suffer when it comes to league tables.
