Changes in childcare have led Capita Education Services to re-brand itself as Capita Children’s Services and has also renamed one of its main education products to reflect changes in child care.
The company supplies children’s data management systems to 22,000 schools and 146 local authorities.
The firm said the change in identity signifies the company’s commitment to deliver technology that meets the evolving needs of education and social care teams within local authority children’s services departments.
The company has also announced that it has changed the name of one of its core products. The Education Management System (EMS) will now be called One.
One, which is currently used by the majority of the UK’s local authorities, will provide children's services departments with a central database which contains a single, comprehensive record for each child.
One has been developed in tandem with local authority changes that now bring education and social services teams together to plan for each child’s requirements more holistically.
