eCWIP Schools & Academies Business Forum March 2019 - Slides and draft brochure of services
21 Mar
Thank you to everyone who attended the eCWIP Schools & Academies Business Forum (March 2019), we hope you found the morning useful and feel well equipped with knowledge ahead of the new year comeback. Following on from the event please see attached the PowerPoint slides for your information. Also attached is the draft brochure for the services which may be available to your site (dependent on whether you are a school or academy), please note this may be subject to change. It is not the final service offer. However it will give you a feel for the services that will be available for 2019-20 academic year in advance of services being launched in April 2019. You can also see our external partners PowerPoints (BRIO, Edsential, Qwest) slides from the day. Further information on eCWIP Traded Services 2019/20 price lists will be released in the next few weeks. We are aiming to get the prices finalised as quickly as possible as we are aware schools need to start budgeting for the year. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions.

eCWIP Annual Schools and Academies Business Forum - 19th March 2019 @ Forest Hills Hotel
26 Feb
We are now holding our first eCWIP Schools and Academies Business Forum (e-SBF) of 2019. This will be held on 19th March 2019 at Forest Hills Hotel, Overton Hill, Frodsham, Cheshire, WA6 6HH. We will be showcasing all of our eCWIP Services for the coming academic year. This will give you the opportunity to speak to service managers directly about their products and services, ensuring you are fully equipped with the knowledge and understanding of what that service brings to your schools and academies prior to you buying into it for another year(s). It will be a half day event (09:00-13:00) and lunch will be provided. We feel that this will be a valuable session and it is something that we have developed following your feedback where you told us that we needed to spend more time with schools/academies, helping them understand how the services will benefit them rather than just sending out information and asking you to opt in. We want you to leave the event having a thorough understanding of all the services provided through eCWIP. The full catalogue of services and prices will be released by April where schools and academies will then be able chose their services for the coming 2019/20 buyback. Services will have designated stands at the event where you can speak to officers directly during the networking sessions about any specific issues/queries that you may have for their relevant areas. Can you please register your attendance using the link attached no later than 13th March 2018>>>>>>>> http://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/8AGPL/ If there is anything specific that is of particular concern or interest to you that you think would fit in with the format of the event then please either mention on the registration form or email us at ecwip@cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk and we will try to ensure that it is covered where possible. The final itinerary will be released to schools no later than the week before the event. We are working hard to improve the way in which we provide services to schools and welcome your feedback and attendance at these events. Kind regards, The e-CWIP Team 012449(73893)
