IT lifecycle management will protect your school’s data and make your budget go further

With the announcement by the UK Government that all schools in England will take on academy status by 2020, the way educational establishments are funded and managed will be increasingly under the spotlight over the next few years.

What is the most effective way of proving to inspectors that your school is reaching out into the community?

One of the things about inspectors is that they like to see proof that the school is doing what it claims to be doing. Which when it comes to reaching out into the community can be a bit of a problem.
Unless of course you have an eBook collection of dual language books with videos, which allows you to show that you have the community resources, and also allows you to prove just how much uptake of the facility that there is.
Because these books are supplied as digital copies there is never any worry about them getting lost or damaged.
