Feedback from 2016 

'Richard has also played a key role in training all the staff to develop confidence in using innovative technology including cutting edge work with robots and a successful Microbit project.  The positive impact Richard has made is felt across the whole school'
 Anthony Smith, Business Manager - Southall School
 

Richard planned and delivered a superb iPad training day to a group of our Pupil Premium children from years 2-5. The pupils were fully engaged and motivated by creating content and posting it on a blog for parents to read, becoming more independent as the day went on. They are now 'digital leaders' in their year groups. Thanks for empowering them.
Richard Nugent, Computing Coordinator - Pye Green Academy, Cannock
