Cantium Business Solutions (@CantiumSolution), a specialist provider of HR, IT and finance solutions to the education sector, has appointed Mark Hodges as Education Sector Lead.
In his role, Mark will be responsible for Cantium’s education offering to schools, reviewing its roster of services and shaping its response to the increasing challenges of cyber security. His immediate focus will be on evolving services to help mitigate against threats and improve workflows for staff as well as relieving pressure on back office systems.
Utilising years of experience in senior leadership roles within education settings, Mark will also lead the way in cultivating relationships with Cantium’s partners, expanding its reach beyond the South East to the whole of the UK.
Mark Hodges comments on his appointment,
“This role is a way of expanding the way in which I can support schools and help them to establish the rich and secure digital systems they need. My objective is to streamline the proposition and champion our specialist education expertise. Concentrating on doing a few things exceptionally well is the path to growth for the business.”
Mark joins the role with twenty years of teaching experience, ten of which have been in senior leadership. He has been responsible for IT during new school builds, responsible for infrastructure and software. Mark gained experience at Cantium as an education systems team manager, supporting schools with School Information Management Systems, training, consultancy and helpdesk support.
Mark Scott, CEO of Cantium Business Solutions adds,
“We are delighted that Mark has taken the helm of our education offering. Thanks to decades of education experience, Mark knows the IT challenges that schools face on a daily basis, and is armed with the knowledge to connect with our customers’ needs. He will also play a huge part in expanding our services geographically. We are excited to soon be reaching more and more schools with secure digital solutions that meet the needs of 21st century classrooms.”
“We need to implement tech that reflects today’s hybrid learning model, tech that is adaptable and enables staff to focus on teaching and learning rather than battling with legacy systems that do not suit the environment or the students they are working with. Streamlining the way systems are set up and accessed is a huge part of Cantium’s ambitions, and I am excited to develop this further.”
