School Name: Brighton College Abu Dhabi 

Supporting Member Organisation: CHQ Group

Date Used: January 2018

Comments: CHQ is a fantastic tool excellent for parents and teachers alike. Teachers have really appreciated having immediate access to contact information and medical details during activities, through the CHQ mobile application, and our ability to monitor ‘who is where’ during co-curricular periods, has tightened up our safeguarding of pupils”. Simon Crane, Head of School, Brighton College Abu Dhabi

School Name: The British School of Gran Canaria 

Supporting Member Organisation: Dragonfly
 
Date Used: October 2017

Comments: Alan Jervis' workshop was universally appreciated and valued by the teaching staff, with each member of the faculty finding numerous tips, advice and stimulating ideas readily available. The enthusiasm instilled, and practical nature of the workshop meant that several staff implemented new strategies and resources the next day of teaching! - Julian Clarke, Director


School Name: Wellington College International, Tianjin 

Supporting Member Organisation: Titus Learning 

Date Used: September 2017 

Comments: Titus Learning was presented to us by our previous Group Director of ICT. He had contact with some of the current managers … and found them to be energetic and responsive. Here in WCIT we usually find working with young teams in developing companies with good ideas, positive energy, and a flexible approach beneficial to both sides, and Titus Learning was no exception – we quickly agreed upon all terms and requirements, and the Titus team started work immediately. Ours is perhaps a specific case, as digital communication in China can be quite different to what we are used to overseas, but together we managed to overcome problems and our VLE was set up and ready to go. - Gregor Markovic, Head of ICT

School Name: The British School in Tokyo

Supporting Member Organisation: EyeFilm

Date Used: September 2017

Comments: 

Having commissioned EyeFilm to create a short film show-casing our flagship BST Outdoors programme, we were delighted with both the process and the final outcome. Charlie and Max were with us for a full week and filmed 'on location'in a range of precarious positions - dangling from ropes, balancing in kayaks and running alongside paragliders. They were great sports throughout and the result was spectacular! 

They also offered a masterclass in film editing which went down very well with our students and which we hope will pay dividends in the future as we produce our own video highlights in-house.

I can't recommend the EyeFilm team highly enough - and we will certainly welcome them back to Tokyo in the near future. - Brian Christian, Principal


School Name: Jerudong International School 
 
Supporting Member Organisation: Titus Learning 

Date Used: September 2017 

Comments: The EduLink One app is great and far superior to the alternative app we trialled. Our teachers love being able to complete the register on a mobile device and adore being able to edit/create reports at home with a really effective write back function. EduLink One has been a revelation to our staff. Registers take seconds to complete, requiring very few clicks. All very easy and time efficient. - Barnaby Sandow, Principal


School Name: Polish British Academy of Warsaw 

Supporting Member Organisation: the-learning-crowd 

Date Used: June 2017

Comments: The workshop with Natalie from “the-learning-crowd” was a valuable experiences for my school teachers. The two-day training was well planned and focused on our needs and questions. The staff response to this training was overwhelmingly positive! They immediately put the information they learned to work in their classroom experiences, parent meetings etc. Thank you! - Kamila Wilczynska, Headteacher

School Name: Doha College 

Supporting Member Organisation: CHQ Group

Date Used: April 2017

Comments: In the short time we have been using CHQ, it has really changed the way we approach our Extra Curricular Activity schedules. There has been a massive time-saving with the removal of manual spreadsheets and databases. We have been able to increase the number of ECAs that pupils can sign up to at no additional work load - this has certainly made parents happy. Importantly, we are able to better track where our pupils are after school and so be more confident in the safeguarding of our pupils. Douglas Briggs - Director of Extra Curricular Activities 


School Name: Maadi British International School

Supporting Member Organisation: the-learning-crowd 

Date Used: March 2017 

Comments: The Learning Crowd provided MBIS with an excellent consultancy service. Great communication before, during and after the school visit ensured clarity of objectives, insightful discussion and a pragmatic report to support school strategic action. The Learning Crowd provide a very professional service and represent value for money. Highly recommended. - Richard White, Head
