MY SUCCESS STORIES
I lead the PTSA Computing Hub and enjoy meeting and working with schools across the city delivering CPD and guidance for Computing and cross curricular teaching. I work in partnership with a team of highly skilled SLE’s and PLE’s who specialise in Computing and actively work hard to share their knowledge and skills.
I have worked with a number of school supporting them in putting together budget bids and action plans and successfully supported schools when purchasing technologies that affect the infrastructure of the school.
I have also supported school moving towards cloud solutions and provided workable models that can bring about real change in the ways that schools share information and communicate.
I have supported schools when moving into cloud solution and helped them transition into using Office 365. I have shared examples of good practice, offered working examples of implementing cloud solutions in school and supported schools to make the transition into a new way of working.
