Joskos Solutions

Joskos believe that building the right level of support is critical. Our focus in on supporting learning and providing teachers with the best possible tools and environment to have the greatest education impact. Our approach is to build an approach that shows a deep understand of how teachers work so we have focused on building a support service that provides the basics of what people understand to be a managed service but to then build on layers that directly target and support educators.

Accessing service is paramount, making the most of it is essential. Therefore, to On Board people to our service we have created and shared a series of short and to the point videos. These show how to access the service being provided, how to make the most of the service and how to ensure that responses and support is provided in the shortest possible time.

We also focus on providing a service that aligns the education vision to the technology being deployed and the service being procured. By building alignment, value is added beyond the technology and the educational impact can be explored and developed. Our people also add exceptional value through their personal and professional experiences.
