All Consultants at Nexus Associates have an education background, either on the front line as teachers or in the background as technical staff. We know schools inside out, and understand the unique ways in which schools use ICT and the demands this places on support services, infrastructure, software and hardware.
A Nexus Associates technical audit will: highlight user requirements; baseline the current ICT solution capabilities, strengths and weaknesses; help ratify the current investment; and aid in driving out the overall vision for ICT.
Our services will aid your school in reaping the benefits of any existing investment in ICT. We’ll also advise on any new technologies your school could and possibly should use to support teaching and learning.
