Civica Education to work with 5,000 school and colleges

Corero Business Systems rebrands as Civica Education reveals new partnerships

Civica Education (formely Corero Business Systems) has announced it will be working with 5,000 schools and colleges globally to improve teaching and learning capabilities and reduce costs.

Corero was recently acquired by Civica to bolster its education offering.

Corero supplies financial, student and business management ICT systems to an estimated 1,000 UK education customers.

Civica supplies ICT across the public sector and with the acquisition of Corero will now cater to 5,000 schools, colleges and libraries globally. 

School software supplier Corero Business Systems recently partnered with St Pirans Multi Academy Trust and the Leeds Jewish Free School to align their back office administration, financial and HR systems.

Paul Staniland, consultant at Leeds Jewish Free School, said: “I have been involved in three separate installations of Civica Resource in two other free schools and a converter academy. In each installation I have always found Civica’s team professional, efficient and helpful.

“The software is ideal for academies. Investing some time and effort to exploit the full potential of the system produces appropriate internal management reports and returns to the EFA at the press of button.”

Bernard Snowe, managing director at Corero Business Systems, said: “By bringing to bear the depth of capability and experience, we look forward to helping customers mitigate risk and deliver and sustain improved school management.” 

According to Lee Burley, managing director, education at Civica,  schools and colleges face increasing demands for improved teaching and learning with more widely accessible and personalised services.

“Civica’s broad education business following the integration of Corero Business Systems provides a strong and stable partner for schools and colleges in the UK and internationally with a unique combination of people, technology and sector-specific expertise tied closely to the individual learning outcomes of customers,” he added.
