Students of today are facing a rapidly changing world, and the skills needed for the jobs of tomorrow are changing too. Used appropriately, technology can enhance the learning experience and help to support a modern teaching approach to deliver skills of the future. To achieve this, it is critical to work with a technology partner who understands how technology can work for your school to enhance the teaching and learning process and who will deliver best in class education technology support.
Finding an IT provider that understands how technology can truly benefit your school and its unique requirements can often prove demanding. Providers seem to offer similar services, but you want to ensure you are making the right choice.
Many suppliers talk about the support and services they can bring to your school, but at Astec, we prefer to talk about how we can work with you as a technology development partner. We will engage at every level of the school, from the senior management team, through to teaching staff and site teams.
We work across Sussex, Surrey, Kent, London and throughout the South East. Please get in touch with our education technology and cloud computing specialists..

A digital revolution is coming to the traditional classroom with technology reshaping our expectations of the curriculum. The essence of the modern classroom is the embracing of collaborative and personalised learning for all students, including those with learning difficulties or physical disabilities and providing a route to engagement that may otherwise leave a student’s potential untapped. Astec will work with you to deliver The Modern Classroom to your students.
Impactful ICT, whether in Primary, Secondary, Higher or Further Education, relies upon having a reliable and efficient support service in place that allows teachers to focus on teaching and learning with technology rather than seeing it as a barrier.
Technology brings genuine benefits to students and teachers alike, and to gain the most value from your investments, you need to ensure that you have best in class support available to minimise disruption and downtime.
School transformation doesn’t only happen in the classroom. The traditional school infrastructure of purely on-premise solutions has undergone radical changes over recent years with the emergence of dedicated cloud services for education.
A cloud-based infrastructure can bring multiple benefits for schools, from better ways to secure devices and school data, to more efficient IT administration and measurable improvements in educator and staff effectiveness.
Although every case is slightly different, schools and colleges seeking outsourced IT services often have similar requirements, whether covering essential skills gaps within internal teams, long term sickness cover or staff departure, or possibly looking at ways of addressing cost savings. By opting to outsource your IT requirements to Astec, you and your teams can focus on what matters most – student improvement and outcomes – and not worrying about managing your technology.
For technology to be effective within schools and colleges, it is important that the procurement process shows not only cost effective acquisition but also ensures that the technology itself is suitable for the requirements of the school.
Astec have strategic partnerships with both manufacturers and distributors alike, allowing us to provide a comprehensive range of ICT equipment and solutions to educational institutions.
