Our action oriented and data driven approach provides school leaders with the information they require to make better technology decisions
9ine Consulting are independent technology specialists in education providing: strategic, operational, project management, technical and digital coaching consultancy services. We collaborate with schools to develop an effective strategy for technology supporting them operationally, technically and in the classroom. Our action oriented and data driven approach provides school leaders with the information they require to make better technology decisions. We support teachers to improve their professional practice using technology and being entirely independent and not selling software or hardware, means we place whole school improvement at the centre of our services.
ICT HEALTH CHECKS
Our engagement with schools starts with an ICT health check with the output being a strategy and action oriented plan that identifies all issues, complete with the appropriate remedial actions. This process begins with an on site visit to the school where we complete a strategic review, focus groups with: staff, students, parents and governors, a systems architecture review and an ICT operations review. The final stage of the health check is a strategic ‘Sandpit’ workshop to review the on site findings, create an ICT vision and develop an action oriented plan to support the school with delivering its vision.
We support all our schools to develop, plan and implement their technology strategy. We do this by understanding the strategic priorities of the school and then working together to develop a focussed and meaningful technology strategy. The strategy clearly outlines what needs to be achieved, how it will be achieved and why. In developing the strategy we will also develop, an action oriented costed plan, which will allow you to knowingly move forward with its delivery.

Ensuring teaching staff has the confidence, skills and knowledge to use technology is the key to success. 9ine support teachers in the classroom by providing a range of bespoke services focused on improving professional practice and the effective use of technology to support teaching and learning outcomes.

We provide technical assurance and day to day technical issue escalation services to support our clients in the development, management and troubleshooting of their ICT services. We are retained by many of our schools to support their internal teams to overcome technical challenges and making strategic technical decisions. Being independent and vendor neutral allows us to assess a range of technologies, software applications and ICT.
We provide ICT project and programme management services to manage delivery of complex technology projects in Education. Our Prince2 and MSP qualified Consultants support schools across a range of projects, including the management of technology into new build schemes, options appraisal and transition of a managed service and the procurement of network systems and servers.

Our Digital Skills Programmes equip teachers with the digital skills they need to use the actual technology they want to incorporate in their lessons.
