Each of our ICT Support contracts is flexible and can be customised to meet your school’s needs, and can cater for any size. Our ICT Support for Schools contracts range from onsite IT support to remote support via our service desk.

Onsite ICT Support

Regular onsite IT support is purchased in time blocks and can be used for break/fix support or to support any changes that may be required within your school. This allows us to agree on how often your school would need someone onsite. As an example, this could range from twice a week to once a month, all depending on your requirements. One of our dedicated engineers will be on site at the school on the agreed days to support you with any technical issues or questions that you might have regarding your ICT equipment. If there is one month where your school might need extra on-site assistance, additional ad-hoc days can be purchased.
