About the ESC

The ESC is proud to announce it is celebrating its 10-year anniversary in March 2014. The last 10 years have seen the IT sector transformed with changes in software and hardware, and new and cloud-based technology. The Education sector itself looks very different today, academy trusts, consolidation of resources across multi-site campuses and the proliferation of BYOD. ESC support has kept pace with the changing nature of its customers' needs.


The ESC is based at Nottingham Trent University and was created by Microsoft to specifically serve the Education community, we understand that the impact of a system outage is not measured by a cash loss but by the impact on reputation and quality of service.
