As a 100% EdTech focused company, and SWIFT corporate sponsor, we are delighted to share Computeam's blog posts and case studies.
In today's article you can find out how Computeam built a sustainable IT strategy for a growing MAT of SEND schools. .
Computeam became the new strategic IT partner for The Forward Education Trust (FET), a Multi Academy Trust of SEND schools located in and around Birmingham, following a successful national tendering exercise via the DfE in 2020. Computeam have worked since then to drive a trust-wide IT strategy, whilst preparing for the opening of two new-build schools in September 2021.
The Forward Education Trust caters for a wide range of specialist needs amongst its pupils, ranging from SEMH to PMLD and every school’s requirements for IT are different.
The Challenge was to harness a capital build project to improve IT across the Trust.
FET’s successful outcomes for SEND pupils at its existing schools had enabled it to bid for several new build programmes let by the DfE and the local council. These programmes come with capital budgets to provide a good infrastructure in the new building, however the Trust wanted to use this investment as a springboard to improve provision across its existing schools, much of which had suffered from a lack of available funding in recent years.
