We are driven by a commitment to education. We believe that ICT can make a significant difference to children’s learning and well-being and that it is business-critical for schools. We believe that Britain’s future depends upon the development of citizens who are creative, confident and responsible users of technology.
Our ambition is to be recognised across the East of England as leaders in the field of educational ICT.
The ICT Service has a broad range of expertise and experience working with schools in Cambridgeshire and beyond. We understand the demands facing school leaders and practitioners and work closely with them to develop a coherent approach to strategies for ICT.
