Blog post on behalf of Mike Morris – Further Education Business Manager
Our events are an excellent way for colleges to find out more about Microsoft’s free products and programmes, and how they can save money in education institutions.
Our latest event for FE colleges is with the JISC Southwest RSC, on Tuesday 20th March at the Energy Skills Centre at Bridgewater College. This event has had
lots of interest and is unfortunately now full, but we wanted to show the format of these kinds of events for future reference.
Some great Microsoft FE partners will be at tomorrow’s event to talk about recent successful implementations. There will be some useful discussions to
support IT Operations and Academic ICT, whatever their areas of interest.
We’ll be sure to post how the event went, and let you know about any similar upcoming events.
