Powys Local Authority
ICT visioning project
Powys Local Authority commissioned Schools’ Buying Club to engage with their schools in order to better understand their current use of technology as well as how they might use technology in the future.
Schools’ Buying Club supported the Local Authority in designing an engagement programme that included gathering data from stakeholders using an online questionnaire and hosting two online round table events for secondary and primary schools.
Both mechanisms yielded meaningful data and Schools’ Buying Club published a detailed report with a series of recommendations and next steps. Powys Local Authority was able to use this report to inform their upcoming ICT spend as well as inspire and shape their long-term ICT digital aspirations for schools in the region.
“We enjoyed working with the team from Schools’ Buying Club and were delighted with their input and contributions from start to finish. The report from Schools’ Buying Club has helped guide our ICT procurement strategy, not just in the short term, but inspired us to consider the long term possibilities and options open to us to enhance outcomes for all of our learners. We would thoroughly recommend their services.”
