If your organisation is a Jisc member you already have access to extensive advice and practical support from our sector experts to help you in your daily practice.
However, in these challenging times for HE and FE you are probably often asked to take on new responsibilities or to take part in a project that requires you to think in new ways about unfamiliar concepts. Or perhaps your organisation has embarked on a major change programme – developing a digital strategy, planning new IT infrastructure or implementing blended learning, for example.
In these cases you might want to tap into additional, highly specialised support.
How we can help
Retained expertise gives you access to someone with specialist knowledge and experience to:
Bounce your thoughts and ideas off
Help you ask the right questions and frame your thinking in a safe space
Enable you to sharpen up your project plans and manage change
Enable you to keep ownership of your project and to develop skills and abilities that can take you to the next stage in your career
Our subject specialists have the technical and sector-specific knowledge to support you in using digital technologies to achieve your operational goals.
Sign up to one of our four packages of support and use the time however you choose over a 12-month period. That means you can opt for as little as an hour of phone support to talk through a particular issue, or arrange a day’s visit to your college or university to review project plans, take part in a crucial meeting or participate in a workshop.

How it works

Arrange a free, no obligation, virtual meeting to talk to your subject specialist so that you can learn more about each other and agree a practical way forward.
We offer four packages, and a preferential rate for Jisc members.
Simply order the package of hours that you need (you can add more time later if needed), and agree a start date. Then get in touch when you need input – it’s helpful if you can give us as much notice as you can so that we can try to fit in with your plans as closely as possible.
