At Brother, we keep it simple and make it easy. We recognise the importance in listening to ‘your voice’ when it comes to developing our products, so we have established strong and effective partnerships with schools, colleges, universities and key education bodies over many years of working in education. Those partnerships have helped us to create a whole range of sustainable printing solutions for education, which means you can concentrate on what’s really important – development and learning. “As some of the most innovative and cost-effective solutions available, you can be sure they’re the best choice for your school print strategy” This useful guide will not only help you choose the right solution for printing, scanning, copying, to faxing and labelling, but also explain the partnerships we embrace and invest in, to make education integral to our business.

The art of winning Here’s an assignment that not only showcased students’ artistic talents, but also helped one lucky student win a wireless Brother all-in-one printer for themselves and an A3 multifunction printer for their school. Open to students aged between 11 and 18, we put the brief out to Secondary Schools to get them to help us design and illustrate an A3-sized piece of artwork to be used within this Education Guide. As the standard of the work we received was so high, choosing from the many entries was extremely difficult. After long deliberations though, the eventual winner was chosen. We are proud to announce that the student whose work is featured in the centre pages of the guide is Marta Weglarowicz from Cardinal Newman Catholic High School in Warrington. Congratulations Marta!8
