The UK’s fastest growing and most innovative Education Management Consultancy, all based on unique online systems. Handsam specialises in developing solutions for your schools’ problems which can be tailored specifically to your needs. We bring together expertise from the private sector and Education Arenas to provide this unique set of products and services.

“The Academies Enterprise Trust has implemented Handsam's unique online Health and Safety management system across all of our academies. Not only does the Handsam system ensure that all of our academies are compliant, but, via the innovative dashboard system, our AET Central Service Team are able to produce instantaneous management reports, and target our support to the areas which we can identify require it. Handsam's Incident Reporting system allows AET to ensure all of our academies, which spread across England from Middlesbrough to the Isle of Wight, record all accidents and near misses and allows those at both Academy and AET Central Service level to spot trends and patterns. This means we can intervene, inform and support staff on the ground to keep incidents to a minimum. Without the Handsam system AET would have found it very difficult to ensure corporate governance of these difficult areas and Handsam will continue to be an integral support service as we grow to become the largest Academy Trust in the country.”
David Triggs, CEO, Academies Enterprise Trust
