In this three-part blog series we will take a trip down memory lane to see what this tells us about the potential impact new technology will have on the future of education, discuss how as the pace of innovation and new technology increases so does the pace at which these technologies impact our lives and not always for the good. Finally, we will look at what the future might hold and how we can help you have certainty at an uncertain time.

The purpose of the levy is to encourage employers to invest in Apprenticeship Programmes and to raise additional funds to improve the quality and quantity of apprenticeships. The levy is set to raise £3 billion with a view to funding three million new apprenticeships by 2020. All businesses – whether they pay the tax or not – can access the Apprenticeship Levy.

After all, the right timetable helps maximise your students’ chances of achieving potential across all their chosen subjects. The good news is that best-of-breed software providers have developed a way to ensure the ‘human element’ is central to the automated solution – so we no longer need manual timetabling methods.
