ICT in Schools Team


South Tyneside ICT in Schools Team is based in OpenZone @ The Word in the Market Place, South Shields. The team supports all South Tyneside Schools with a comprehensive package of support covering technical and curriculum support.

We offer a relaxed, attractive environment for school students and teachers to access the latest developments in technology.

We work with students and teachers on a variety of cross-curricular projects, whether it’s film-making, podcasting, animation or coding.  We can support schools in realising the potential of the latest technologies to enhance learning and teaching.

Our objectives are:

  • To guarantee an excellent education experience
  • To improve access to, and use of, the latest educational technologies
  • To increase attainment levels through the use of new technologies
  • To improve the quality of learning and teaching
  • To act as a test bed for innovation and new ways of working
