“Great to get the opportunity for hands on exploration of programs with expert support.”

123ICT ran both staff training and parents and carers workshops at Appleton School. Though the subject
matter was taken seriously, the presentations were lively and kept us all interested. We found the information
covered in the staff training very good. After gaining input from our Governors this will form the basis for our
school’s e-Safety policy. Very engaging and a good balance – explaining that we need to be prepared for 21st
century whilst being aware of the dangers of the internet.”
