Levett Consultancy have worked with Paradigm Trust over many years to integrate additional schools into our growing Multi Academy Trust, in the last five years three schools have successfully integrated into our trust, Levett are already helping us to onboard our new special free school and have been integral in the initial development of IT for that school. In addition, Levett Consultancy supported us with Priority Planning, allowing us to plan three year budgets to benefit our learners and provide outstanding IT facilities with up to date systems. The work undertaken by Levett Consultancy has hugely benefited our organisation and allowed us to progress in our goal to becoming an outstanding MAT in the education sector.
The Elite Support Service we have is always super efficient, professional and provides outstanding support. We recently migrated to a new broadband supplier and the team was great in helping with the transition ensuring superfast broadband is accessible throughout the school for using Google Workspace teaching tools.
We use Levett Consultancy for various projects like ICT Technical Support, ICT Consultancy, Asset Management, and Training. We have always found them to be very supportive and innovative. Being able to upskill our staff to use Google Drive has been effective and fantastically well-timed just at the moment the school community needed to work remotely.
We are a small school with a limited budget; Levett Consultancy works well for us as it provides a range of services under one umbrella SLA. We have had excellent training and support from Levett Consultancy, which as resulted in the leadership and teaching teams becoming very confident using Google Workspace for Education across our school and the broader community.
Our project was completed in a timely manner with all of the school instructions carried out exactly and I was very happy with the outcome. We now have new desktops in school, that has enabled the staff to complete daily tasks quickly and effectively to best support the children.
We used Levett Consultancy for an IT consultancy project and were given a good service which was professionally delivered. All their staff demonstrated a solid knowledge of the Google for Education products, which enabled us to deliver remote learning to our pupils quickly and safely using G Suite for Education.
Levett Consultancy set up G Suite for Education and Classrooms as part of the DfE's digital learning platform scheme. The team at Levett Consultancy made the setup process seem incredibly straightforward and I was kept informed at every stage. We now have a digital learning platform in place that has enabled our school to deliver Remote Learning very quickly to our pupils.
Excellent - professional and friendly, enabled us to set up Google Classroom quickly and efficiently during the first lockdown.
We purchased 78 Chromebooks from Levett Consultancy to be distributed across all of our Academies. All Chromebooks were set up by Levett Consultancy in a timely manner without any issues, and now all of our children are able to access learning whether at school or at home through remote learning.
The services that we purchase are managed to an exemplary standard. Being a school when ICT problems arise they need to be dealt with immediately so you have to have daily support and working with Levett Consultancy is very easy. We have a number of services through Levett Consultancy and we find the staff and organisation very approachable, they deal with any issues/problems immediately and if we require any new equipment we have a quote from them the same day.
Very friendly, easy to contact, helpful and knowledgeable staff. Virtual Reality rental solution gave our children a taster of Antarctica which linked to our topic of work. Children were excited, engaged and used it for writing stimulus. Overall I would recommend Levett Consultancy Virtual Reality and training solution for schools.
A fantastic, efficient and professional service - quick turnaround and our one-stop-shop for all our IT needs. Allowing us to make informed decisions when we have limited resources.
The trainer was very knowledgeable in Google G Suite being used in schools. This gave confidence and knowledge to our staff to use G Suite tools more effectively in their job roles.
Excellent - clear communication and understanding of what Chromebooks were best suited to our teaching and learning requirements. Once ordered the Chromebooks were delivered as quickly as possible. Levett Consultancy was also very flexible in terms of payment as, due to it being the end of our financial year, we had to pay a month later. Overall Levett Consultancy was really helpful in ensuring we got exactly what we needed at a good price.
Virtual Reality rental solution from Levett Consultancy was very efficient and effective. The VR solution enabled pupils to immerse themselves in an unfamiliar context and therefore, gained a better understanding of the topic (rainforests) they were studying.
I would certainly recommend Levett Consultancy Virtual Reality rental solution to other schools looking at taking their first steps with VR to enrich the curriculum.
I have been a customer of Levett Consultancy since it's early days and I am still impressed that no matter how big they get they still know who you are when you call and they always help with no matter what the problem is.
Having an annual audit means that I do not have to do run around the building making sure everything has an asset tag and is recorded on Parago but it also gives me the opportunity to sit with Levett and discuss any upcoming needs as they also know what we have in school.
Levett Consultancy worked with me in advance of the G Suite training to tailor it to our needs and then insured those needs were met during and after the training. Within days of G Suite training completion, our organization was already experiencing improved efficiency and comfort in our email system and associated software platform.
I find that Levett Consultancy always offers the best value for money, The expertise of its staff and willingness to be of assistance are excellent and makes issues easier to deal with. As a large school, the support of the on hand technicians are a reliable source that means any downtime and disruption to teaching through lack of IT is kept to the minimum.
Paul and Jo were very friendly and certainly knew their e-Safety stuff. They informed our parents really well about how the internet works and the dangers of using it but in a manner that wouldn't make them frightened to use it in the future. They had good communication throughout the process and the handout for parents was well received. Thank you!
Our parents will now be able to keep their children safer when using technology as they are more aware of the dangers of the internet.
Due to a critical server failure the school was in need of a server ASAP. Levett Consultancy assisted in finding and implementing a temporary solution which kept the school running until the new server arrived.
Levett Consultancy carried out our server migration in a professional and efficient manner. We had some unforeseen technical issues during the migration but these were dealt quickly which resulted in the migration progressing as planned with no interruption to teaching and learning for the school.
The experience with Levett Consultancy was excellent. We received great technical support and guidance with the specification of the server before we placed the order, the hardware was delivered quickly and pre-configured by Levett's before they delivered to site. They worked with our local technician over a weekend to complete the installation, migration and testing which minimised disruption to the Academy and were then at site on the Monday morning to ensure a smooth handover and to provide support for staff as required. Ten out of ten!
Really happy with the way that the asset audit was carried out, and the knowledge that the staff had about going through the disposal bin etc. It was really beneficial to have training on Parago for school staff too, so that we can make more use of the system.
We now have staff who are more familiar with using Parago. We're meeting audit requirements too.
We have been using Levett Consultancy for a few years now and have never had a problem with their staff or the work that we have needed doing in school. If ever we needed ict advice the team has always been very helpful and has come into school to offer expertise in this area.
Having a technician in school fortnightly is invaluable, and whenever we have a problem during the time Ibrahim is not in school being able to speak to someone on the telephone and resolve any issues we have has been very good for Columbia Market Nursery School.
An exceptional service with a personal touch that helps our school feel 100% supported, 24/7! Thanks so much to you and the whole for another excellent year.
We literally couldn't function without you ...and that's the truth!
Levett Consultancy provided excellent service when we transferred over to their services. The transition was made easy by supportive and knowledgeable staff. Everything was done thoroughly and quickly. The team who installed the server were very efficient and got the job done with little inconvenience to staff. We have had some very minor teething problems but other that that everything is working far better than what we had before.
We have a far more effective and efficient network. The servers are all brand new and up to date. The ICT support is excellent and staff are happy with the service they are getting.
Very friendly and approachable. It's great that Paul is willing to come in and share his expertise and make recommendations. It's also great that the company know the school so well.
The new School ina Box network system is faster and there were only a few minor technical issues at the beginning, which were resolved quickly.
Very good - always efficient and quick to act. We now have a much more up to date server system to support the curriculum and administration services in our school.
I have always found the company and staff very efficient and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble and the staff always take their time to explain what they are doing and answer any questions you may have and make sure you always understand.
We have had two projects on the go the first being the purchase of Chromebooks and trolleys, the second being a new phone system. Levett consultancy always make sure they get quotes from different companies and if possible get the companies to visit and give a presentation.
Our school were using Windows XP which is not longer supported by Microsoft. Levett Consultancy visited the school and carried out a survey of our PCs, tablets and laptops. We were advised that 5 PCs were not compatible with Windows 7. Once the survey had been completed by Levett Consultancy, they started the process of upgrading each PC, laptop and tablet. I was informed along the way of any issues that required a resolution. All in all the process was very smooth.
I have found whilst working with Levett Consultancy that no job is too small. I feel confident when I contact the support team that my request will be dealt with efficiently. We have a dedicated engineer who attends the school, therefore, staff feel more at ease speaking to him regarding concerns they may have.
Levett Consultancy was very efficient and helpful in undertaking an asset audit of Notre Dame High School. They took the time to explain how best way to manage assets and how to use Parago Asset Software. The Parago asset management system is now fully up to date and so I feel confident that our assets are now properly logged.
Levett Consultancy have worked with GYPA for the past three years, providing outstanding IT strategic and technical support which has had a direct and tangible impact on pupil outcomes. LC has a deep and pragmatic understanding of the needs of pupil and staff users and has consistently delivered high quality, appropriate and efficient solutions.
Home Access Plus+ setup service from Levett Consultancy was seamless, cost effective, friendly, efficient and everything I expect an IT service to be. It can be compared to a Ronseal product as it does what it says on the tin. Patrick seems a very knowledgeable and dedicated professional and went about his business without fuss but with expertise. Home Access Plus+ has given the staff the opportunity and flexibility to work with their documents and email from any remote location on any given platform from one single area, given broadband availability.
A fantastic company to work with. Wonderful staff, very friendly and helpful. I would definitely use again. Wireless ina School has enabled us to be able to use multiple wireless devices across the school.
The installation was incredibly smooth running. The school now has all of its iBoard Touch devices and notebooks connected to the wireless network to enable productive, engaging learning for the children. Whilst teachers can make the most of their time by bringing their own mobile devices into the school and using them both in lessons and in the staff room for planning, reports and research.
The Service was fantastic. Staff are brilliant and very helpful to resolve some of the issues we have been experiencing. Always willing to support and help out when there is a problem.
Levett Consultancy installed Parago Asset Management System. I found the team to be punctual, reliable, trustworthy and polite. I would recommend their services to other schools.
A professional service is always delivered by all staff at Levett Consultancy. The technician we have on site is the best investment the school has made in the last 12 months. I was Involved and consulted throughout the recruitment process and couldn't be happier with the service provided.
Having a technician on site all the time is best decision we could have ever made. ICT is functional and useable all the time!!
We are very pleased with the service we have received from Levett Consultancy. They do their best to solve any issues as soon as possible. They are a very friendly team with our interests at heart. They always put in extra time if need be, to make sure we are happy and things are completed. They are a company who always puts the interest of the school first!
From start to finish this experience has been positive. I asked for a technician to come and introduce Scratch to two Y6 classes and I received two sessions completely delivered by an experienced technician which gave the pupils more than just an introduction. The technician arrived early and set up, which meant both groups only needed to turn up. The technician also made himself available to discuss Scratch with the ICT manager after the sessions.
This session was delivered well and was very positive to pupils and staff. Both sessions were well prepared and the teachers were able to gain valuable knowledge about using Scratch from an experienced technician. Now that the ICT manager has been involved in a Scratch session, plans and timetables can be developed for next year.
Having worked with Levett consultancy and all the staff that work there for a couple of years now I can honestly say they are always a pleasure to work with. I always get a response to any email or call that I make and they are always willing to answer the silliest of questions.
The new Windows network systems that has been installed has made things easier and safer for all staff and children. Staff are very happy with the new systems in place, which has assisted in positive teaching and learning in the classrooms.
I found Levett Consultancy Service for the procured services of Asset Discovery to be very efficient and effective. For such a large 'All-through' Academy with so many assets it was a big task which was undertaken methodically and systematically with the outcome for the Academy having a new asset system fully populated, all certified and handed over for our year end external audit.
Our Academy has benefited through this very labour intensive exercise having been robustly completed independently, giving the Academy, its governors, and auditors the peace of mind that the Academy Assets are an accurate view/inventory of its assets at a point in time. The Academy now has a solid robust Fixed Asset System in place that can easily be managed going forward for its additions, also for to manage its depreciation to the Academy Asset Policy.
I would recommend Levett Consultancy for this service to other Academies.
By hiring Levett Consultancy to undertake an asset discovery, this has helped improve the asset management in our school, by allowing us to keep track of all our assets using the Parago Asset Management system.
Solutions to ICT problems are always found. There is an excellent support network that can be easily accessed and is readily available.
Deadlines for technical issues are met and effectively managed both short term and long-term. Excellent strategic support and knowledge of current ICT developments that are tailored to the school needs. The consultancy is more of a partnership than a service that is bought.
Levett Consultancy installed efficiently, and gave clear and precise training. Impero and Google apps are very easy to use within the education system. Google Apps has also improved communication and collaboration with staff, pupils and parents. The school is also more environmentally friendly (a lot less printing).
I would definitely recommend Google Apps Edu and Impero Networks deployed and supported by Levett Consultancy.
An outstanding example of what true support can be provided in asset management for schools.
Levett Consultancy have recently assisted us with the installation of Parago's Asset Management System. During this process we found all members of the team to be punctual, reliable, trustworthy and extremely approachable.
Following the installation we have seeked their assistance for technical support with the inputting and merging of existing data. Again the team are always willing and helpful.
Levett consultancy were very professional. The benefit of engaging their service was to help our school to enter all our electrical equipment onto the parago asset register, which was done quickly and efficiently. This task would have taken us days to complete which Levett consultancy completed within a day, which was fantastic.
Generally the Parago set up at our offices in Derby and the subsequent asset capture at both our main office and at Alton Towers went well. The time allocated for capture at Alton Towers proved to be a little short but the guys did the best they could within the timeframe.
We were impressed with the professionalism and advice by Levett Consultancy during our asset management review. The staff were informed, helpful and efficient. We would recommend their services to other schools.
Over the half term break we had Levett Consultancy come into school and carry out a full asset management audit using "Parago". We did have this system in school last year but due to time restraints on staff and other duties that needed to be carried out we felt it would be worthwhile to have Paul and his team come in and get all our assets on this system, once and for all.
Overall the whole process was very quick and stress free for the school and we were able to come back after the holidays to a system running perfectly and with greater knowledge on how to utilise the tools that are within the software. A great investment well worth the usage of a couple of our consultancy days.
Our company has benefited from the aid of Levett Consultancy immensely. At first they came in and sat with us to find out what we were looking for, after this initial consultation they went back and recommended the most cost effective and practical approach. Levett Consultancy went to great lengths to get a price that beat every quote we received from others.
Once they installed the system, Levett Consultancy provided comprehensive tutorials to help us understand our system so we could utilise it efficiently. After sales service and support has been excellent as well, whenever we have needed their advice, or needed them to pop in to help us with the new system, they have arrived straightaway and helped us sort out our problems.
The lads that put the asset management package 'Parago' on our system were absolutely brilliant.
The software has proven to be an asset and an auditor found the reports easy to read and locate items. All schools should invest in this Parago package.
I have found both the consultant and technical staff to be informative and also receptive to the issues faced within a school environment.
We have been made aware of the developments within ICT that will effect the system in future. Introduction to new software and free packages has been shared with the ICT coordinator. Training that has been delivered is tailored to the needs of the school. Levett consultancy has a professional attitude and a good understanding of the needs of their clients.
Levett Consultancy has supported our school in a variety of ways to both enhance how our school uses ICT and suggest cost-effective alternatives. For example, in addition to setting up our new school network this summer, the team also improved the school wireless network and revolutionised our asset management by organising out IT assets onto the Parago system. All this support has freed so much of my time so I can focus more on teaching, the children and the ICT curriculum.
To summarise Levett Consultancy are a team of knowledgeable and dedicated professionals who are always available to assist with our school´s ICT needs and requirements. They provide a dependable and friendly service and I would not consider using anyone else for our school´s ICT technical support. I have complete trust in the solutions they offer and am indebted to the support they give to our school.
What is striking about Levett consultancy is the company's dedication to ensuring the school's needs are fully met. From our experience this has been underpinned by the leadership of Paul Levett. This means that all staff have an understanding of meeting the customer's needs and this is their priority. Furthermore, from our experience, Levett consultancy has also been involved in supporting my school in saving money!
Levett consultancy have been involved in supporting my school put in a new server and a number of new computers, while there have been some minor issues, the company has been dedicated to providing a good quality service. I would certainly recommend them to other schools.
