WHO WE ARE
We are a small team of educationists who believe that every pupil has an entitlement to use IT to help them achieve their learning potential. We all believe that IT can make a positive contribution to teaching and learning. JEM N.E is a “Community Interest Company”. This means that we focus our work and expertise to support the regional and local education communities. We are a “Not for Profit” organisation delivering affordable and high quality and targeted support for schools.
We are “Local”. We work in the North East and will come to your school.
Our delivery is “Face to Face”. We know that teachers value interactions with our team members.
We deliver “Practical Advice and Support”. We will use your school system to deliver training, so that you know that, when we leave at the end of the session, the software and hardware can support your work.
Mel has worked at local, regional and national levels providing support for schools in the use of ICT and learning. As ICT inspector for a large regional authority, Mel provided strategic support in the use of ICT and school improvement for over 300 schools. Mel understands the business of learning and the drivers which impact on educational leaders.

At regional level he has successfully brokered national collaborations to support the development of regional technology and broadband support services. John’s strength in providing strategic thinking is an asset to successful developments.
Ed has worked at national and international levels for many government and non government organisations to provide strategic advice on access to and provision of broadband and online technologies.
