Firefly 6

Managing Firefly in your school

Designed for: Technical Leads, Project Leads, Network Managers.

At Firefly we understand the crucial role that IT staff play in the successful use of technology within your school. Having your network team well trained helps to ensure efficient use of Firefly and the best return on your investment.

Our workshops, led by experienced trainers who really understand the day to day management of Firefly have an informal and practical approach which you will find both accessible and conducive to learning.

If you or your colleagues have already attended a training day with us, or received some bespoke training or consultancy, you will know what a friendly and professional team we are.

Cost: £300 (+VAT), to include lunch and refreshments through the day.

This session will be led by Tristan Kay from our Client Experience Team. Previously, Tristan has been responsible for the implementation and integration of Firefly in a large International School. As part of his role he managed Firefly on a day-to-day basis while working with closely other members of the IT team.
When he is not visiting schools as a Firefly Consultant, Tristan spends time working with schools as part of the Firefly Support Team.
