It’s often said, ‘teamwork makes the dream work’ – and there’s a good reason for that: it does!

Education is a sector built on collaborative working with common goals.

Whether everyone is together in the classroom or learning remotely at home, it’s intuitive to use and easy for teachers to lead learning – and educators can use it consistently in every situation, with no swapping and changing of solutions according to where they are. 

Easy integration

If your school uses both and MyConcern, the two solutions don’t need to operate in isolation. Once configured and integrated by your IT team, you can send any of the alerts from students that are triggered in directly to your school’s MyConcern account so that you can view them in both places. And, once set up, it’s easy to do – it’s a simple click of the ‘Send to MyConcern’ button on each event that a student triggers in
