Description

The College is seeking an innovative Audio Visual partner who can demonstrate leading edge solutions around interaction and collaboration. The preferred supplier will have over 10 years experience in providing solutions into the education market sector, with an understanding of the relationship between technology and pedagogy in Further Education. Ideally, the College is looking to appoint a partner with experience in deploying solutions in vocational and continued professional development environments, and also in large scale deployments in any sector. The company will have a complete wrap of services, including:
· Consultation- Pre and Post Sales
· Solution Design
· Project Management
· Vendor Qualified Installation Team with skill sets in AV Installation, Data Networking and Electrical Services
· On-site and remote support
· Training facilities and external trainers
The successful organisation must be agile and flexible to meet the College’s evolving requirements.
The College requires an Audio Visual (AV) Solution that supports remote and interactive teaching, learning and collaboration, whilst supporting the retrieval of information and management of personal technology. The solution must be device-agnostic to ensure compatibility in a ‘bring your own device’ (BYOD) learning space, where students and staff will be encouraged to use their own devices and connect them to the College’s network. The College will be operating through a ‘hub and spokes’ model, working with a number of spokes across the UK. The College will therefore have to be able to link between the hub sites of Birmingham and Doncaster and with its ‘spokes’ through video conference and allow learners and staff to join interactive sessions remotely. The solution will have up to 700 users in year one and phase up to 2450 users in year three (not concurrent). The solution will need to be implemented by July 2017 in order to be in use by The College from September 2017.
The solution needs to be capable of providing:
– Interactive display with a ‘walk up and use’ user experience
– Videoconferencing in a multi-site learning space
– Lecture delivery with synchronicity across multiple virtual users
– Interactive-collaborative spaces that support panoramic interactive walls and canvasses. These spaces are likely be used for command and control traffic management, BIM cave and station management
– Ability to share content to and from devices, students and teaching staff
The solution will need to accommodate the following spaces:
Birmingham Campus
– Classrooms x 30
– Conference / Event Space x 1 – with capacity to host 150 delegates plus presenters
– Social Spaces -restaurant area x 1, coffee area x 1 and open social area x 3 – Reception
– Meeting rooms x 10 (varied sizes)
Doncaster Campus – duplicated across both sites:
– Classrooms x 30
– Conference / Event Space x 1 – with capacity to host 150
– Social Spaces -restaurant area x 1, coffee area x 1 and open social area x 3 – Reception
