Engage implementation teamImplementing a large school group requires skilled leadership and manpower, not only from Engage but from the schools involved.

School Group implementations

Launching a large school group can be accomplished in two ways. Either by phasing ‘go-live’ dates, or, where the group is required to ‘go-live’ simultaneously, our parent company’s Operations director, Mike Taylor, becomes involved to plan for additional implementation and training staff to be drafted in from the UK and other regional offices as required to ensure smooth implementations and coordinated launches.

School Group Analytics

An important yet often overlooked consideration when installing a School Group, is the depth to which the school group’s HQ wants to be able to analyse their schools’ data, whether school by school or comparatively. Once established, each school’s set-up and configuration can be confirmed.
