Working with you every step of the way
Through an initial engagement our Head: Technology and Online Learning collaborates with the Principal and/or their delegate to carefully scope the service and develop the statement of work. Depending on the scope of the engagement the implementation typically involves several one or more day's effort including, small group interviews (usually with teachers and school admin staff and sometimes involves small groups of students, parents and/or members of the school Board/Council, as requested).
The school visit includes observation of key elements agreed to in the scope often including;
- the helpdesk in action
- documentation (eg. policies)
- a high level analysis of core infrastructure (eg. servers; switching WiFi, firewall)
- key processes such as confirming the back up schedule.
An Executive Summary is compiled and discussed before the confidential Final Report is drafted and presented to the relevant audience.
Make informed decisions
At the conclusion of the engagement, Principals and ICT leaders often comment on their high degree of satisfaction with the ICT Advisory Service and its capacity to help them make sense of their school's current situation. The report identifies key recommendations in an understandable, non-technical format. This process assists Principals and ICT leaders to make informed strategic decisions about the school’s ICT Strategy.
Independent and impartial advice
A particular feature of this service is that AISNSW has no vested interest with any vendor or other party and therefore is solely focused on delivering an independent, confidential and robust ICT Advisory Service to inform the Principal about the school's current ICT capacity whilst making sensible recommendations that address the school's current and future needs.
