What's Ahead for e4education?
Published on 10/12/15
Since the turn of the century my mission has been to grow a business that helps schools succeed by designing and developing amazing school websites, as well as provide career opportunities and a great place to work for talented people.
In this time our teams have helped develop our business into a market-leading provider, creating thousands of websites and bespoke applications for education. I have enormous respect for schools and the people that work in the profession, especially after having seen the effort and hard work my daughter put into training as a primary school teacher. We are a passionate group, and the philosophies of the company are built around offering the very best products and service, in a consultative and friendly manner.
We are very serious about our business but recognise, as a thought leader, we need to help improve their whole school marketing and communications. With this in mind we recently launched the e4education Academy, the first platform purely to give free, impartial advice and guidance to schools.
e4education and The PiXL Club
We are extremely fortunate to work with so many great educational organisations. At the forefront of all of these wonderful relationships is our sponsorship of The PiXL Club, an organisation who help schools raise standards across GCSE, A Level and Key Stage 2. They work with over 1300 schools across the UK, and every year The PiXL Club family continues to grow. As well as being a key sponsor we also work very closely with PiXL providing bespoke software development services. For over three years we have developed several educational applications, all designed to assist and improve performance in schools. One of these groundbreaking products is The PiXL Edge, a framework to develop and accredit students’ personal attributes, essential for employability and life. I am extremely proud to be associated with PiXL and was recently asked to become a Trustee for The Edge, working alongside influential organisations such as The Youth Sports Trust, National College for Further Education, Career Academies, Association of School and College Leaders.
Technology is at the forefront of everything we do.
We recognise that smart technology can save schools money and add value to school communications and learning in the classroom.
Being the first school website specialist to provide a fully responsive framework, has meant we have been able to embrace the emergence of how consumers access websites, and offer our schools the very latest in web design.The latest addition to our offering is a mobile and tablet app, taking communication between parents, teachers and schools to the next level. Revamping our previous app, we have been able to include push notifications and increased usability, creating an easier way to view news and events pushed from thousands of school websites.
