Apple devices are inclusive for all pupils

Apple devices have accessibility features built-in, making it easier to create an inclusive learning environment. iPad is designed to empower all students.   With features like Speak Screen for example, which reads content aloud to pupils with vision impairments, you can ensure every pupil is getting an immersive learning experience. Another feature called VoiceOver walks pupils through on-screen actions, such as opening an app or selecting a setting. This can be a massive helping for students with motor and physical skills.

Apple devices have loads of accessibility features built in as standard, all designed to help level the playing field for learners with a range of special needs and disabilities.

BT offers financing and funding options for Apple devices

With limited budgets and lots of competing investment needs, it's sometimes difficult for schools to find money to fund a capital investment. But this doesn't have to put pay to your Apple device roll out. At BT, we can help with alternative ways to fund your investment, be that through parental contribution, or by moving your capital expenditure to operating expenditure by using a lease. BT offers the financial choices you need.

Parental Contribution

As attitudes change, it's now quite common for schools to approach parents about supporting their child's education by investing in devices. A parental contribution programme is a great alternative way for schools and colleges to close IT gaps in education and roll out technology in the classroom.  All without impacting school budgets. Our parental contribution scheme, BT Computability, makes it easy for you to manage a programme from end-to-end.
