Headsets for Education

Empower your educators with Apple Professional Learning

Apple Professional Learning, or APL is a tailored form of CPD that’ll cover topics your teachers and technicians will benefit from at a level and pace designed for them. We offer a “standard” APL course called "Planning Essentials". We highly recommend it for schools who want to get started with a plan to deploy many Apple devices in their learning environment.

Apple Professional Learning sessions can also be tailored to cover a whole host of training needs. One of BT's Apple Education Specialists will match you with the best trainer for your needs.

Apple Classroom is a powerful tool to enhance learning and guide students through lessons. It helps teachers manage their classroom and support their pupils' learning.

Mobile Device Management

An MDM will enable you to integrate your DEP, ASM and VPP all in one location. It supports 1:1 device roll-outs, including supporting a BYOD strategy. And it’ll help you unify the way your devices look and operate. Whichever MDM solution you choose, it’ll help you structure the design of your Apple Classroom roll-out to make it even easier to manage.

Mobile Device Management is recommended for schools who have, or are planning a large device roll-out. MDM solutions are particularly beneficial to multi-academy trusts, because you can centrally manage all your devices, whilst still being able to create a more personal profile for each school. BT offers a range of MDM solutions, and our Apple Education Specialists will help you choose the most appropriate approach for the needs of your school.

Manage the devices

Streamline admin tasks:

  • Easy remote distribution of Apps, iBooks and course materials
  • Restrictions help maintain the iPads as required
  • Set up Wi-Fi, VPN and email with ease
  • Create classroom lessons
  • Assign devices as shared or 1:1

Monitor your deployment

Clear visibility of the device activity:

  • Clear view of workflow command progress
  • Dashboard view gives an instant view in real-time
  • Monitor the lifecycle of the devices from enrolment to deployment and beyond
  • Easy inventory searching to manage licenses

Secure controls

Ensure safe administration:

  • Devices are initially set up with a suitable level of governance
  • Ongoing management is easier as it follows set up protocols
  • Lost mode protects the device in the event of loss, theft or simply being misplaced
  • It takes just minutes to securely wipe and reset devices

There are a variety of MDM solutions available depending on your specific needs and budget, please contact our Education IT Specialist for bespoke pricing and packages
