With remote learning for all schools becoming the norm over the past 12 months, it has become increasingly important to implement the most effective digital platform for your school.
As you are probably aware, the Department for Education have been providing government funded support to do just that, allowing schools to install either G Suite for Education (Google Classroom) or Office 365 Education (Microsoft Teams). This particular funding however is due to expire in the coming weeks, so you should consider taking advantage of this offer if you haven’t already done so. It has been our pleasure to have worked with a number of schools recently and we have successfully implemented both solutions allowing home learning to pupils in a secure and effective manner.
For your benefit we have included the link below to register for this grant and if required we would be more than happy to assist you. To facilitate with this process, we would recommend choosing Softcat as a preferred partner for Office 365 or Haptic-Networks for Google Classroom. This will allow for the installation process to be quick and seamless as these are the companies we have been working with throughout this project.
If you are unsure as to which solution would be the most effective for your school please refer to the article below that explains the differences between the two platforms:
Many thanks as always and keep safe.
