Microsoft 365 Technical Events

Free, half-day events for School IT staff and Managed Service Providers to learn how Microsoft 365 can help improve outcomes, reduce costs and simplify how you manage your devices.

Microsoft Have Teamed up with education training specialist Tablet Academy to deliver a series of events which introduce the new Microsoft 365 way of working - deploying and managing devices remotely using Intune and Autopilot, and improving communication and collaboration using Teams and Office 365 applications.

Join us for a morning or afternoon to hear about:

  • The new Microsoft 365 licensing model which includes Intune, Autopilot and Minecraft for Education for free.
  • Deploying and managing devices (inc. iPads) using Autopilot and Intune, therefore reducing the minimum device spec. and need for a separate MDM solution.
  • Migrating to Office 365 and Teams, including how to create, manage and embed best practise.

Who Should Attend?

The content presented will be specifically tailored for Network Managers, IT staff, IT Directors and industry providers supporting the use of Microsoft technology within educational institutions.

The purpose of the event is to inform attendees how Microsoft 365 licensing, Intune, Autopilot and Teams/Office 365 can support your institution to achieve more, reduce your workload and decrease costs.

Using Microsoft 365 and Intune to manage devices can reduce the minimum spec. requirements for devices therefore reducing cost per machine.
