Hello! My name is Jonathan Coy, and I am a co-host of HeadteacherChat. I am delighted to have been given access to Sync to see what they have on offer to support Academy Trusts. I thought you would be interested to know what I discovered!

‘Enhance Learning for all.’
Our approach covers everything from helping schools introduce the latest Apple devices into the classroom, integrating with current systems, guiding CPD and curriculum strategies, and supporting technology services. Meanwhile our Educationbuyback and recycle scheme ensures older devices never go to waste.
Sync guides academy trusts through their technology procurement. They offer technical support, CPD, an iPad purchasing Programme, and teacher benefits scheme with access to discounts on high street technology products.
With 28 years of experience in IT Procurement and operational educational support under its belt, Sync has a proven track record.
We explored the services provided by Sync and these are our thoughts:
Sync provides schools with a complete support package for iPad procurement which also helps you to plan, implement and deliver a technology embedded curriculum designed by you and your team.
They provide a clear structure of support from day one. They will plan with you to ensure that they meet your IT requirements, including installing IT software. There are also handy go-to guides on their website with lots of teaching ideas and suggestions.
Sync have shown that they help schools to show impact in using innovative technology. iPad enhances pupil's engagement and helps teachers to plan creative and engaging learning opportunities with ease. Their highly trained curriculum advisors have teaching experience and are on hand to assist teachers.
“Sync have been exceptionally helpful in assisting school leaders in developing their vision in the creative and innovative use of technologies to enhance learning. This was the main driver for our project, of course then assistance in advising on what technology would best meet our needs and ensuring that we had the infrastructure to ensure success of our project came next.”
Georgina Frost, Headteacher, Park Hall Academy
“iPad has made my lessons pacier, with a range of resources I can use to adapt and improve my lessons. They have had a big impact on the range of work that children are producing and are now capable of producing independently.”
Stuart Mclean, Teacher, NSPS
‘Sync are experts in the field of integrating technology into schools and into the curriculum. Their CPD service enables schools to bring this technology to life through embedding technology into the curriculum and by offering training for staff.'
