WESLEYAN BANK TO UNVEIL NEW WHITE PAPER ‘AFFORDABLE ACCESS TO EDTECH’ ON STAND D134
15 January 2018 – Wesleyan Bank (formerly Syscap) is showcasing its specialist finance solutions which enable educational establishments to realise their technology ambitions and learning potential at Bett 2018 (24-27 January, ExCeL London).
Bett is the premier industry show of the year in the education technology landscape
It will bring together attendees from across the global education community to celebrate the role technological innovation plays in enabling learners to thrive. Wesleyan Bank will be demonstrating its extensive range of commercial and personal finance solutions on stand D134 alongside its parent company Wesleyan Financial Services Limited, which provides expert advice and services for teachers.
As a BESA member, Wesleyan Bank understands the budgetary pressures schools face and has many years’ experience in delivering tailored financial solutions to support investment in IT software and associated services, specialist equipment and classroom and building refurbishments.
The company also provides one-to-one funded learning schemes to help educational establishments and parents finance students’ personal learning devices, which can be used inside and outside of the classroom.
Exclusively at Bett 2018, Wesleyan Bank will unveil its new white paper, ‘Affordable Access to EdTech’, which highlights the latest technology innovation in education, as well as new improvements to established teaching tools and the impact such aids can have. It sets out the risks schools need to guard against by maintaining ICT investment levels, before providing practical advice as to how alternative finance solutions can assist schools to bridge the gap between available public funding and the amounts needed to keep their digital resources, security and skills current.
In addition, Wesleyan will be on hand to assist teachers with their personal financial planning needs, from investments and mortgages to loans, retirement planning, savings and insurance. The organisation’s expert financial consultants specialise in working with education professionals to ensure they stay on top of government changes to pensions and tax.
Furthermore, teachers and support staff visiting stand D134 can sign-up for a free school seminar covering key features, benefits and options of the Teachers’ Pension Scheme (TPS) and Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS), which will be presented by one of Wesleyan’s knowledgeable financial consultants.
Steve Deutsch, Chief Executive of Wesleyan Bank, comments, “Arguably the greatest challenge facing educational establishments is not proving technology’s value in enhancing learning outcomes, but how they can keep up with the pace and cost of innovation to ensure pupils do not get left behind.
“Visitors to Bett can discover how bespoke finance solutions from specialist financial providers offer a flexible and affordable way for schools to progress their plans by spreading the cost of IT investments. This ensures they no longer have to fall behind with technology, whatever the Government’s funding strategy.”
Several exhibitors attending Bett already allow schools to purchase IT solutions and specialist equipment with spread payment facilities provided by Wesleyan Bank. The company is keen to talk to other education vendors at the show.
