ICT and Computing in Schools Consultancy
You’re an expert. You know what you’re doing. So why on earth would you need a third party, an external consultant, to lend a hand?
The five main reasons, with examples of where I might be able to help, are:
Lack of time. A particular issue might need to be addressed. Having someone come in to deal with that and nothing else can be very useful.
Independent advice. For example, you could have me come into your school or MAT to have a look at the IT provision and suggest ways in which it might be improved, if indeed it needs improving at all.
Fresh pair of eyes. For example, if you are a recently appointed headteacher, head of department or leader for computing or ed-tech in your school, you may benefit from a fresh pair of eyes to help you decide what needs to be done and in which order.
Lack of expertise in some areas. For example, your staff may need training in how to assess pupils in Computing.
Comparative advantage. Even if there are people in the school who can do everything better than an outsider could, it is often comparatively more efficient to hire a consultant to do some of it anyway.
