As a full service creative agency, Absolute is able to support your educational establishment with all it's marketing activity. We have the skills and experience to produce everything from small content sites ideal for primary schools through to feature rich sites for academies and comprehensive schools.
See below to find out more about our education sector experience or call James Bird on 0115 953 4800 ext. 208.
We understand the unique needs of the education sector and have gained significant experience through our work with several organisations in the sector:
The Greenwood Dale Foundation Trust is the sponsor of five academy schools across the region, plus seven primary schools. We have worked with the Trust over the last two years to develop their online presence, in the form of bespoke sites for their academies and more basic, template-based sites for their primaries. In addition to our web activity, we have also designed nine 74-page prospectuses and exhibition materials.
Client feedback: "The finished prospectus looks fantastic and certainly gives all the other colleges a run for their money!"
|Independent Schools Inspectorate
ISI is the London based body approved for the inspection of independent schools in the UK. We've worked with their marketing team to develop a website to present the business in a more approachable, professional manner. The new ISI website provides easy access to reports for over 1,200 independent schools, which can be searched by name, location, postcode and many other bespoke search criteria.
Client feedback: "Thanks to all the team for your help with the new website. The CMS is so easy to use and the new design looks great."
|University of Nottingham
Our work for the University over the years has included print and web promotion for their conference facilities, which we rebranded Nottingham Conferences; microsites for their weddings and Christmas offerings; and last year, we designed and developed two ecommerce sites for the Students' Union to allow them to sell print services and merchandise online.
Client feedback: "Absolute have provided us with a website and system that is professional, efficient and fits seamlessly with our main website design. We want to move our services online and make it easier for students and external clients to use the Print Shop and purchase clothing and we now have a great website for our customers."
For four successive years, Absolute produced Castle College's Full Time Prospectus. Delivered on time and within budget, we received great feedback from the marketing team, which also led to us working with Castle on student recruitment advertising campaigns and other marketing collateral.
Client feedback: "They look great and are really eye-catching... thanks for all your hard work!"
Regardless of budget, we have the ideal solution for your needs:
Powerful Content Management System
At the heart of all the larger websites we produce is the Absolute CMS, which allows our clients to update and maintain all aspects of their website. The system has been designed with non-technical users in mind and is very easy to use. New pages, news stories, events, job vacancies and more can be quickly created via the CMS administration area, which can also be restricted to allow different levels of access to different colleagues within your team.
Feedback we get from clients regarding the CMS is always positive and they typically are surprised by how easy it is to use.
As the CMS is based on our own development framework, we can create unique bespoke modules to allow the site to function precisely how you need it to. Past modules have allowed sites to integrate with internal databases, process online payments and generate custom PDF documents - in short, if there's a logical business process that you want to replicate online, our experienced team of developers can usually provide a solution that fits perfectly.
We realise that a large bespoke CMS website isn't always what is required. We have produced smaller websites for primary schools in the past that use
the popular WordPress system, which provides all of the functionality required, but by using an off-the-shelf template and standard functionality, we are able to keep the costs low while still providing an online presence your school can be proud of.
With our proven track record of delivering creative, professional design and development solutions to the education sector, we're confident we can do the same for you.
