The Consultants Network for Education Computing and Technology (CNECT) Charter

First constituted January 2018.

Definition

A CNECT Member supports and promotes the use of education technology in schools, colleges and the wider community, to improve learning and the life chances of pupils, both directly, and through helping others.

This is because a CNECT Member knows the power of Computing and Ed Tech to transform learning and the importance of Tech throughout life.

Only members of CNECT are entitled to use its logo. Members have agreed to abide by the following quality standards to ensure that customers are assured of receiving the very best customer care when dealing with any member of the network. Every new CNECT member must be sponsored by an existing member of CNECT and will have at least two pieces of evidence showing customer satisfaction.  These pieces of evidence will be suitable for sharing on the CNECT website.
