At R.E.A.L. Education, we have always recognised the importance of technology and the part it plays in making lessons engaging and interactive. As such, all of our venues feature a range of technologies for staff and students to use.

As time moves on, it becomes important to refresh and update the technologies that staff and students have access to – along with our ICT infrastructure (this includes the speed of the networks and internet provision).

R.E.A.L. Education leadership want to see improvements to infrastructure across a number of sites phased over 2022 and 2023. Faster internet and wifi, along with updates to our security and filtering services will form the foundation of these changes.

In future newsletters, we will share more of our plans and explain how these investments help to deliver better learning and teaching services across R.E.A.L. We recognise how important technology is in both the workplace and home situation of the young people we work with. It’s important our venues are equipped to help our students to make the most of the opportunities that technology will enable them to achieve in their lives.
