EiS Kent is in a fortunate position as we already have strong links with other education service providers in Kent and other local authorities; for example, e-Safety Team, Early Years, further education, Kent Finance, Social Services and Teacher Recruitment. We also talk to a huge number of customers daily who tell us what is happening in their schools. We regularly attend or exhibit at BETT, Naace and the Academy Show to hear from key practitioners, suppliers and peers.

Attending and holding events allows us to build our knowledge base to share with our customers and provide insight into new ideas and best practice when thinking about using ICT.

We host an annual IT Conference and Exhibition in Ashford, Kent which is routinely attended by over 200 delegates, and throughout the year we host regular User Forum events for particular users in your school community.

As well as demonstrating the latest thinking across in a wide variety of ICT related topics, these events give us the opportunity to talk directly with Headteachers, Bursars, Administrators, Teachers, Network Managers and suppliers about the key issues they are facing and what they really want in their classrooms or offices.
