  • Because the overall contribution of Education to Microsoft's we are able to view Education as on investment into the main part of our business which is the private companies both large and small that employ our products and the graduates from Colleges. All colleges know about our great value Volume License Agreements such as Campus and EES but less is known other programmes that are often free and focus on helping to deliver success in the classroom and beyond
  • In order for Microsoft to deliver the best experience of it’s technologies to it’s corporate customers it needs them to have enough employees with he right skills. This can be application user skills but is also the skills to support our implementations and to develop creative and relevant new applications. Without access to these skills our customer’s ability to be successful as a result of using our technologies is compromised – which means we have let them down. The main role of Further Education is to deliver relevant educational skills into the economy so our customers success is also linked to your success. As most students go to college in order to learn skills that will give them a better future they also rely on FE, Microsoft, and businesses with job needs working together successfully. This partnership has worked well in the past but changes need to be made in order to deliver the necessary 21st century skills to ensure continued success. This means that there is an opportunity to change what we do together to be even more successful both now and in the future. Microsoft's investments into education offer the opportunity to deliver this change and ensure that Further Education students continue to graduate with skills that get them high value jobs that are relevant to the Microsoft Economy and to the new economy of the 21st century.
  • Right now Colleges are good at delivering a set of skills that was in demand in the past but jobs are emerging in new areas. Microsoft can help to make these new areas of the economy a success and our success relies upon us doing this, but we can’t do without the help of Education and that’s why we invest in helping you make change to be successful. In the past Further Education has done a great job of delivering application user skills into the Microsoft Economy but todays students are digital natives and come into college with this skills already in place. Only focusing on application user skills will not deliver success. Infrastructure skills are in demand now and we estimate that there are 60,000 job vacancies in the Microsoft Economy right for Colleges to focus on. The problem is that courses teaching these skills struggle to attract students as they can seem difficult or boring. Up until now the Microsoft economy has little demand for gaming and application developer but Xbox has recently become the number one by units platform both in the UK and the world, and in October we will be launching Windows 8 which is a single operating platform for PCs, Tablets, phones and gaming boxes with the biggest application market place the world has ever known at its core. The economic opportunity that will emerge when windows 8 is launched in October this year is incredibly large and by focusing on delivering the IT creativity skills needed – not just in IT but across all curriculums, FE can really take advantage of this opportnuity!
  • Here are some additional statistics that support my view of the Microsoft Economy. Independent Analysts predict large growth in demand for IT skills and Microsoft skill as those needed most.
  • As the main provider of vocational skills into the UK economy and the Microsoft economy, Further Education should be accessing the many investments that Microsoft makes available to Education in the form of academic programmes, free software, competitions and other activities to make IT seem relevant and interesting to students. However, although colleges are aware of our great value “Campus” volume license agreement's many of the other initiatives available seem be unknown. The purpose of this presentation is to make Further Education aware of all of our schemes so that they can research those of interest in more detail and work with Microsoft and our partners to deploy them to help make colleges and students more successful

  • Dream Spark is a free suite of all our developer products. It is includes lots of curriculum assets and teacher community
  • As you can see you can guide students to download all of our developer software tools including for phone and Kinect. Kodu is great for the introducing people to the basics of game coding and can be used either on a PC or an Xbox. You can also get developer versions of all of our Professional products for just £250 per department. In most colleges one department would cover all students and staff who might use this. Institutions with Campus or EES agreements can also install Dreamspark in all labs and students access areas for free. Just ask you EdLAR for you Dreamspark code.If you use DreamSpark you can deliver skills relevant to industry on software that is standard and up to date both in the college and on the students own devices, for free. This stack of software would normally would cost £3000.

  • ITA Academy can help everyone in the college from Academic staff and students through to IT support who constantly need to learn about new technologies to be able to deploy them effectively. It costs just £600pa for a whole college on Campus/EES
  • ESPA is a great way to save on the cost of compliance management and get a known annual cost for all of your server, datacentre and data base requirements. As the price includes all external connectors you can extend your communications and services to unlimited additional partners – such as parents an local employers, for no additional costsWhen you license one or more of the CAL Products listed in the table below organization-wide for all if your faculty, staff, and students, and you license the corresponding Server Platform Product(s), you may run unlimited instances of the corresponding Server Products. This option requires licensing a minimum of 350 faculty FTE and 1,000 student FTE.Server Platform Products licensed under this licensing option may only be used by your licensed faculty, staff and students and by licensed external users using the Server Platform Products for the benefit of your institution.

  • A high degree of functionality is free for Education and you can add additional low cost options only to the users that need them to get the right fit for your college. Plan A3 gives students access to 5 downloads of Office Pro for just £24 a year. Who wouldn’t want to get that !?!. You can also opt for A4 for key staff and really scale down your PBX investment.
  • Here is a view of what you get with each option
  • And this is how you can upgrade by capability if you already have some licensing on Campus/EES. This ensures that you don’t have to pay for the same thing twice.
  • In order to make sure the Microsoft Economy is delivering a good experience to our corporate customers now and realising our vision of the future we invest heavily in education. The challenge that faces us all is how to put them together to deliver a meaningful outcome. I hope that you can see the opportunity that Microsoft investments offer to improve the chances of success for Colleges, students, Microsoft and future employers. If you decide that you want to try and use these investments please contact the Further Education Business manager for the UK, Mike Morris, (
