Asset Management for Schools
All schools have important assets they need to monitor, maintain and manage, From laptops and books, to desks and chairs, schools have hundreds of items that need to be managed. Most schools will keep an inventory of some kind but how fit for purpose is yours? It is not just adding items to a piece of software – asset management needs ongoing input.
Good asset management enables you to keep a handle on everything your school owns and is responsible for. It plays an important role in improving educational operations within confined budgets, optimising usage while cutting down on costs.
This course is NOT a software-specific session - it is appropriate whatever system you have currently or whatever system you would like to set up.
