HOW DO WE UTILISE THE IDEAS BUS?

Your school can utilise the bus as it sees fit. It is there for you. We have a wealth of ideas of how it can be used. This will be discussed in the pre-bus visit.

DO WE NEED TO BUY SOMETHING?

Definitely not. The IDEAS bus is there for you to use, gather information and help you make informed choices about the path you are taking in regards to education technology. Obviously if you see something you like and want more information or want to take up the unique offers available, then that is your choice. First and foremost the IDEAS bus is informational!

WHAT IS THE CATCH?

A minimum of two decision makers from the school need to watch the presentation (15-20 minutes long) when the bus arrives. This can be from the senior leadership team (head teacher, deputy head teacher etc), business manager/bursar, ICT coordinator, Network manager etc. In addition, we would of course like feedback to help us improve as well as testimonials so we know we are doing the right things and can improve our visits to schools.

WHAT ARE THE TIMES FOR THE IDEAS BUS?

A minimum of two decision makers from the school need to watch the presentation (15-20 minutes long) when the bus arrives. This can be from the senior leadership team (Head Teacher, Deputy Head Teacher etc), Business Manager/Bursar, ICT Co-ordinator, Network Manager etc...In addition, we would of course welcome any feedback, as well as testimonials so we know we are doing the right things and can improve our visits to schools.

WHAT IF WE NEED TO CHANGE/CANCEL THE DATE?

As long as the bus is within your window of time, whether morning or afternoon you can have the bus arrive whenever. For example if you wanted the IDEAS bus to arrive at 09:00 instead of 08:00 that is fine but it will still need to leave at 12:00.

HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN FIT ON THE IDEAS BUS?

The bus can seat 12 people. For health and safety reasons, standing room only will probably be around 15 to 20 but this will be confirmed before the bus launches.

CAN WE GET EXTRA TIME?

The first visit is always free. Extra time can be purchased. If you decide to purchase an extra session, therefore having the bus for the whole day, it will cost £1 per FTE student with a minimum cost of £300 and capped at £600 (ex VAT).

If the school is one of our Champion Schools, they can get additional sessions at a reduced cost or, for certain projects, it would be completely free of charge. If you would like to be involved as a Champion School, please let us know.

WHAT EQUIPMENT IS ON THE IDEAS BUS?

The IDEAS bus attempts to cover all elements of education technology from hardware to software to services along with some more exciting and innovative new technologies.
