The Engage staff and Teacher App works alongside the Teacher portal to give access to key information whether on-site or ‘on the go’, and is iOS and Android compliant.

Staff and Teacher App complements the Portals

Engage Teacher AppThe Teacher App was released after many requests on Share Ideas and at User Groups, for an app which teachers and staff could use on their smart phones, with one major caveat. Their personal data allowance should not to be used when, for example, taking registration on the sports field.

Although the caveat sounded simple, in practice it required a complex solution which our brilliant development team resolved, thereby allowing the user to do as requested, namely to take registration whilst out of wi-fi range without using mobile data allowance, yet automatically updating Engage when back in wi-fi range.
