HP for Education 2020
“offering massive financial and operational benefits to schools & colleges ”
Academy ICT, your education only ICT specialist, welcomes you to HP For Education 2020
Following on from a successful 2019 programme in which 1.9 million was given back to schools, the 2020 programme is looking to give yet more.
This year we are looking to enhance diversity and well being, reduce teacher workloads, improve recruitment and retention, deliver effective governance all whilst maximising your budget.
But what is it? – Surely it’s too good to be true!
Since 2017 HP for Education has been giving back to schools via this programme, to the tune of £6 million.
Academy ICT schools have received between £500 and £40,000 each
If you still feel “it’s too good to be true” then we have a long line of reference schools for you to speak to.
The rewards from the programme will allow you to invest in all areas of school life.
In 2020 we will be focusing on four critical pillars of school life.
The first is Leadership & Management, including Safeguarding, Data, Communications, GDPR and collaboration.
The second is Teaching & Learning, including Assessment, Behaviour, Attitudes and CPD.
The third is the Curriculum in which the offerings from this scheme will benefit all manor of the wide and varied subject matter.
The fourth is Infrastructure where we focus on Virtual Reality and AI, Website Design, Classroom Tools and Control Technology.
How does your school benefit?
Your school will get money back for old devices either not in use or no longer suitable for school needs.
They will be recycled free of charge and in a responsible way.
You get e-credit to spend on solutions that perhaps your budget could not reach to before.
How does it work?
The cashback you earn from trading in your old hardware can be put towards the purchase of other solutions, via Academy ICT or received as cash into your school bank account.
Initial scepticism became overwhelming gratitude.
Budgets are falling year on year and we get calls every day about free this and free that. Our initial scepticism became overwhelming gratitude.
We could not have afforded to go ahead without Academy ICT giving us access to the scheme.
