Leadership Managing and Making the Best Use of Existing ICT
We will advise you on how to make the best use of the ICT you currently have and to plan for its future use. In consultation with you we will identify where there is further capacity for using your technology, we will help identify areas for development, plan for embedding the use of ICT and will help you to develop a strategy for managing and utilising the technology efficiently and effectively.
In consultation with you, we can plan, deliver and evaluate your INSET session to ensure you make effective use of time and resources and address school priorities and initiatives.
Ensuring that your school is prepared for Ofsted. These sessions are designed to support you with quality school-based training, providing you with key information surrounding Ofsted policy, practice and developments. We will support you to understand the way in which Ofsted Inspectors inspect, use and interpret your school data and help you to build up an excellent bank of evidence to demonstrate impact and overall effectiveness in Ofsted terms.
Using the Self Review Framework Tools
You will learn how to use the self-review framework (SRF) to assess and benchmark your ICT activities throughout your school. We will show you how the tools can help you to identify your current position in relation to ICT and the steps you need to take to improve and we can show you how to make good use of the tools to collect useful evidence for the SEF.
We can support your school in evaluating technology before you purchase, to enable you to consider the suitability of products, relating to their practical use and effectiveness within the learning environment. Evaluation sessions can provide the opportunity for staff and students to experience a demonstration of key features and benefits of a particular type of technology, gain some hands-on practical use and be involved in peer discussion and offer feedback to inform decisions.
