Associate education technology director

In between the senior executive leader (CEO) of your Trust and the IT managers, coordinators and technicians in your academies lies a space that is occupied by the Education Technology Director.

More than a manager of your infrastructure and services the Director of Education Technology understands education, business planning, your processes, technical innovation, procurement and professional learning. They are a strategist able to help the Trust’s executive officers make best value and innovative decisions relating to Education technology (Edtech). They lead implementation and support key staff. Such people are few and far between…….

You are a small Trust and such expertise is hard to find and that key person is likely to be a costly overhead.
