A comprehensive initial training programme, focused on how to use the service, was provided by C2K for teachers as it was rolled out to each school (not because of perceived resistance, but because this is good practice). Evaluation evidence is that this programme has been very welcome. Further pedagogic training is the responsibility of the curriculum advisory and support services and it is up to the local curriculum advisory and support service to ensure that teachers get the best from the service in their own classroom practice.

The programme was based on a detailed statement of expected outcomes which envisaged that teachers, taking account of their pupils’ ages and phase, as well as their prior learning, should know: ■ how ICT can be used in teaching the whole class, groups, or individuals within carefully planned lessons; ■ when, when not, and how to use ICT in teaching particular subjects; ■ how ICT can be used for planning, as well as for preparing and organising resources; ■ how to assess pupils’ work when ICT has been used; ■ how ICT can be used to keep up to date, share best practice and reduce bureaucracy.

Public and private partnerships can be successfully developed, tailoring to meet local needs. ■ A centralised approach to ICT services can be wrapped in legal, contractual, financial protections not normally afforded by schools.
