Here at easipc, we’re always looking for new ways to support schools, helping them to provide the best possible teaching to their children. This includes providing our wide-ranging IT support and services for schools in Northamptonshire, Milton Keynes and beyond, which has led to a new and exclusive partnership.
We are now the go-to Microsoft Global Training Partner for the East Midlands region. This programme enables IT experts to deliver free training to both mainstream and special schools on how to make the most of the Microsoft products they are using.
Rob Lloyd, our Technical Manager at easipc said of the partnership: “It’s a very rare certification to achieve and we’re the only one in the region, so it’s a brilliant accomplishment to be recognised by Microsoft for the services we provide to schools. Not to mention the positive impact we can have through the scheme, especially for children with special educational needs (SEN).”
The useful training covers essentials like Microsoft’s Learning Tools, a suite of accessibility features built into every Microsoft software that can enable students with SEN to use the software more easily. This can include modifying text make it more legible for dyslexic students, or automatically removing clutter from the screen to help students with ADHD to focus better.
The training’s aim is to build out the educator’s knowledge of the software, enabling them to integrate these skills into their teaching, and the student’s learning, more broadly.
