Building on the success of Bramble Hub top scoring in the CCS RM1050 ICT for Education Services framework Richard Archer, the owner of the Bramble Group, has decided to setup Bramble Education to focus on the RM1050 framework opportunities as well as using experience gained from delivering to central and local government in the education sector especially with Multi Academy Trusts.

Our team of go-ahead experts are bringing ICT innovation into the learning environment. We really make a difference, and show just what can be achieved with the right know-how and the right commitment. Together, let's shake things up. Let's change outdated technology and the thinking that goes with it.
Richard Archer - Bramble Hub

Richard has appointed Mark Stevenson to head up Bramble Education. Mark has been working in the education marketplace for the past 16 years bringing a wide range of experience in business development, sales and delivery in Building, IT and Energy projects in educational establishments.

Marks role is to build and develop Bramble Education in partnership with the wider partner network to create an IT company that can deliver to a very high quality nationally across England and Wales. Mark will be supported by Paul Wyatt-Pike and a wider team of sales, technical and service delivery personnel initially seconded from Bramble Hub and the wider partner network.

The current education IT marketplace is stale - little seems to have moved on in the last five years. There is a lot of talk about innovation but the same companies are selling the same hardware and software. I am excited about how we are developing the Bramble Education model to focus on educational outcomes rather than hardware. There needs to be more emphasis on change management and training for teachers and senior leaders rather than widgets and over-engineered local IT networks.
