Primary support

As John Galloway discovers, the ICT Co-ordinators File does exactly what it says on the tin

What would you expect to find in a folder called The ICT Co-ordinators File: Support for Primary Coordinators? Useful articles about management issues and ICT such as an outline of the new Ofsted framework, or how to assess ICT use in performance management? Maybe guidance on particular units of the QCA scheme of work - 5E Controlling devices - or training colleagues on PowerPoint or Excel? And even information updates and reviews of resources? Well, you won't be disappointed then, because that's what you get. And it's written by practitioners, advisers and people who should know.

It's easy to read, well laid out and full of content that will be useful regardless of how long you've been doing the job. Everything is designed to be photocopied and shared with colleagues and all the material can be downloaded from publisher PFP's website.

Subscribers receive three issues a year each with a spread of articles on six key aspects of the role, including management, training, the curriculum, resources and information updates. Plenty of things to get you thinking - as might the rather weighty price.

However, as a bonus, if you mention this review when buying it you will get the Handbook for ICT Coordinators worth pound;19.99 for free.
