Simplifying technology and future proofing IT strategies to pave the way for innovative new learning and drive positive outcomes across all sizes of Multi-Academy Trusts.
Multi-Academy Trusts (MATs) are educational trailblazers with big ambitions when it comes to raising standards and academic outcomes for pupils. Innovative technology shapes learning, teaching and collaboration within education, so staff and students need access to applications, resources and flexible connectivity wherever they’re working and from whichever device they choose. IT needs to be user-centric, engaging and support both staff and students, whether through academic progression or personal well-being.
Wavenet Education can help MATs obtain the optimal balance between centralised efficiency and localised autonomy by providing reliable IT support, services and expertise, flexible enough to facilitate the needs of individual schools and the scalability needed to embrace new academies as they join the Trust.
