Funding for this level of support is provided directly to schools via their global budgets. Schools are required to use this funding to purchase any form of additional ICT technical support required by the school. This may include, but is not limited to, maintaining computers, printers and software, delivering professional development sessions or designing and building local computer networks. This funding is to be spent on ICT technical support only and schools are required to account for expenditure of this money.
School may choose to hire any combination of:
- local technicians
- IT trainees
- direct negotiation with contracting companies to purchase additional specialist technician time to carry out this work
