Member Stats - ANME

Member Stats are Back!

Posted on: 14th Jan 2019 by: ANME

We're proud to announce the return of the ANME Member Stats!

Since the ANME was founded in 2014 the members have been asked to provide information about their schools / colleges, and network environments. Ranging from the number of staff, students and PCs, to which PC and server manufacturers they use etc.

It was collated periodically and statistics in the form of charts and graphs were shared with the members, providing an insight into what colleagues in other schools are using for various requirements, and how their school compares when it comes to IT Support Staff numbers etc.

These statistics are now available in the Member Portal, and are updated live!

“Quickly benchmark your school to understand your staffing levels and technology to pupil ratios”

Members will be prompted to update their details periodically, but can do so at any time, seeing the changes in the statistics as soon as they've made the updates.

There are currently 50 pie charts and graphs available to view, and more will be included as trends change in the future.

  • ANME meetings provide valuable networking - being able to talk to other professionals doing the same role and understanding their approach and their context. This is a great way to challenge what you are doing in your own setting.

    Neil Limbrick, ANME Ambassador

  • A fantastic online resource of like-minded professionals that you can use to bounce ideas off, chat things through, get advice from. Invaluable.

    Ric Turner, Balshaws Church of England High School

  • The ANME is a priceless resource for anyone working in an IT support role in the education sector. The online forum is lively and informative and the regular meetings provide insight into new products and valuable networking opportunities with peers from other establishments. I've lost count of the number of valuable conversations and helpful tips that I've had since becoming a member. If you've not been to a meeting before then try to attend the next one in your area, you won't be disappointed.

    Dave Leonard, ANME Ambassador and ICT Manager at Matthew Moss High School

  • The ANME has been a great resource when you're a lone IT manager, now you have friends going through the same obstacles as you, with plenty of advice and guidance.

    Michael Frost, ANME Member & IT Network Manager at Parkwood Hall Co-operative Academy

  • Being part of the ANME is like being part of a large corporate IT department, there's always someone you can ask for advice

    Paul Gillon, ANME Member & Network Manager at West Hill School, Stalybridge

  • ANME is like having a team of IT experts at my fingertips. It helps me keep up to date with the latest trends in IT education.
    Rick and the ANME members have always helped when I've needed extra guidance to make great IT decisions

    Clifford Fernandes, ANME Member & IT Manager at Claremont High School

  • I attended my first ANME regional meeting recently which was great. It was Informative, relevant and useful! Unlike some meetings I attend where you get one or two useful nuggets of information, but other bits have been added to the agenda as fillers. Glad to be a member of this group of like-minded individuals.
