Lockdown laptop landmark for SIPS Education

Technology rollout enables pupils to continue home schooling.

A Sandwell-based not-for-profit education service provider has reached the landmark of 1,000 laptops and tablets it has configured for home schooling, allowing pupils across the region to study safely and efficiently from home during the pandemic.

Education has worked across fifteen schools in the region, spending an average of 45-60 minutes on each computer, getting them ready for home schooling.

This work forms part of SIPS’ wider commitment to equip its schools with modern technology and cloud services; driving closer collaboration between students and teachers, improved accessibility and flexibility, whilst minimising the impact on schools’ budgets.

Chris Tromans, Technical Manager at SIPS said: “As a schools-focused organisation, we understand the importance of education for young people, placing those young people at the heart of everything we do.

“I’m pleased that we’ve been able to provide schools with the tools required in order to continue to deliver lessons, even outside of the school walls. The devices provided by the DfE will now allow young people, especially those from disadvantaged families to gain access to essential remote learning and resources.”
